    Help! Need a quality new chain for classic 6 speed road bike

    I'm riding a beautifully restored 1980's Razesa with the classic Super Record drivetrain and a Malliard 6 spd freewheel (not an ultra), 126 mm dropout.

    Are there any good new non ultra chains out there?

    Plus, is there a quick disconnect non ultra chain (like the new SRAM Powerlink chains) out there for this drivetrain?




    Thanks for any guidance and tips on this.

    Use a Sram 8 speed.

    Thanks sydney.

    I'm new to modern chain construction and application.

    Can you recommend a model number and a place to buy one? I've scanned around and seen that most are ultra, with a wide price range.


    Thanks again

    A pc 58 or 68. The 68 is silver and looks sexier. Try nashbar,performance,supergo, jensonusa or pricepoint. Any LBS should have one too.

    Nashbar periodically has deals for 6-spd rated chains as well, but I still agree with the sram.

    No powerlink but if you want a NOS type chain ebay usually has classic regina chains listed. Some people claim they shift smoother with the old drivetrans.

    I second this idea....

    If you want to keep it classic, get a NOS Regina Oro off ebay. Usually can be had for ~$25.

    Here's one from Loose Screws :chain
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Thanks for the link DD

    And thanks to all for the feedback.


    I think I'll try the SRAM w/powerlink, mainly because I want to be able to clean my chain more effectively, and if it isn't shifting smoothly as the Sachs Sedisport Iíve had on the bike Iíll go with a new Sachs.


    Thanks to all again. I'll let you know which works best for me.
