On 3/32 specific track cranks, what is the chain compatability for them? Sorry no examples.
Hope this isn't a stupid question.

I'm pretty sure 3/32 track cranks can fit both 1/8" and 3/32" chains.
Is that the kind of answer you're looking for?

nope, I ment what speed of chain.
Might vary with model and chain ring though.

3/32 rings should work with any chain from 1/8" through 8 speed. Have to try it to see if will work with narrower 9 through 11 speed chains as it will vary with ring thickness in the tooth area I suspect.
it works with 9 and 10sp chains.
the only difference between 7/8/9/10sp chains is the outer width.
the internal width to all of them are 3/32.
if you want a bit of durability/longevity, it would be better to go with an 7/8 or 9sp chain over a 10sp chain.
