    bushings or bushingless..

    I am in the market for a new single speed chain. Mine got twisted from my incident.

    I prefer it to be silver or nickel, with a quick release link, must be quiet/smooth and decent quality. Also, should I get one with bushings, seems like the expensive ones I looked at have bushings.

    Any suggestions?

    3/32"? 6,7,8 speed ? would be hard to find anything But bushing-less types
    I found a couple bushed Whipperman , black steel 3/32" but were from NOS. and gone..

    OR, full bushing 1/8" you may be looking at Track (good to best, not cheap) Chains
    or BMX adequate, function lower cost [for cheaper consumable replacements.. ]
    are the dividing line.

    I was looking at the kmc D101 and the izumi super V, are they worth the extra cost?

    Bushing chains are a more of a traditional construction. The D101 is a premium track chain with sealed-bushing tech where the bushing fits into a cut out on the inside of the outer plate of the chain; no lube out, no dirt in.

    Other premium 1/8" chains are the Z510HX (H = beefier inner plates, X = stretchproof, mushroomed pins) or the K710SL.
