    Anyone ride a Record chain?

    It's time for a new chain and because of the minor price differential (5 bucks) between a Chorus chain and a Record chain, I'm thinking might as well get Record.
    Here's the thing...Record uses hollow pins to shave grams as oposed to solids in Chorus (I believe)

    Is Chorus stronger/better for a clyde? (Campy says Records just as strong and wear resistant)

    Any other down side of Record? (hollow pin hard to repair on the road maybe?)

    Thank you!

    PS I'm pushin 240 lbs now.
    Chorus cranks and Record BB no problems in 1500 miles

    I'm 240ish and running a Chorus chain on my "Formal" bike, lol. I don't have any experience with the Record, but the pins concern me. My sprints are short, but have some torque.

    Are you up the beauty of ProBikeKit for ordering this silly stuff that we can't live without?

    PBK rocks...I just wish they have stuff in stock more often!
    Right now they are out of record chain, chorus chain, and the record rear derailleur I'm looking to score. The problem is they show such low prices that I end up rather waiting for it to restock rather than buying elsewhere.

    I'm 230 and ride a Record chain. I haven't had any problems with the chain. I ride double and triple centuries and do put some stress on the chain.
    Make mine a double!

    Exactly the testimonial I needed, thank you! Record it is.
