    Yet another (different) chain question

    I've been thinking about putting a Suntour Ultra 6 freewheel
    on my wife's Eisentraut. I figure this might be a good way
    to get an extra gear without having to coldset a 28 year
    old frame.
    Question is, I can find the Freewheels, but not the ULTRA6
    chains. Does anyone know of a contemporary chain that
    will work with the ultra design (which had smaller spacers
    (and cogs?) to allow 6 speeds in 120mm frame spread)?

    Thanks in advance,

    Marty

    It's the same as an 8-speed chain.

    thanks.

    Roadie, I knew about the spacing etc. from Sheldon
    not sure which chain would be correct i.e. 8 speed etc.

    thanks,
    Marty

    Why worry about coldsetting? I've done many, 30+ yrs old even.
    Good, long lasting results!!!

    ( I DO understand your hesitance though)

    Just get an inexpensive Sachs/Sedis 8 spd- it should work fine, if you do get the ultra 6.

    Ride Well
