What kind of chain for my 7 speed?

The crank says "SG narrow chain". Will any 8 speed chain work?

HG 50 or IG 51 would work.

Chain

The Sachs/Sedis chains might be easier to locate as SRAM chains, and work great (i.e. PC-58 for 6-7-8sp.). The Powerlink that comes with them also makes it really easy to remove and reinstall for regular cleaning and maintenance. Have them on both road bike and commuter. Happy riding !

Yeah I have a PC-89 on my MTB and a Dura-Ace with a powerlink on my road bike. I ordered a PC-58 Monday for the commuter.
