    Instead of the Thudbuster with elastomers, I would recommend Tamer Pivot Plus that entirely relies on spring mechanism and so requires no replacements down the line.

    Once a link spreads, the links behind it cease to work and the stress increases on the links ahead of it, perpetuating their wear. If you put a worn link into a new chain, it will act as a seed of...
