    3/32 chain recommendation

    This is kind of a dumb question to ask after almost a year of riding fixed, but what kind of chain do you enjoy for your 3/32 setup? I had a stock of HG-8spd chains that I have been using up till now, but I've burned through those and I'm in need of a chain replacement.

    Thanks

    KMC Z610HX businesscycles.com has them and they are excellent! No stretch and tough as nails.

    if you like that KMC check THIS out.

    been using these chains on the commuter for a while now and they're great. the best part is this is long enough for TWO normal chains (AND YOU STILL HAVE LEFT OVER).

    for some reason it isn't what i use off-road, where i found an even nicer cheap chain.

    works good (i can't really say better but it is shinier and looks higher quality so i pretend it is more reliable for off-road use ).

    i replace the chain pretty frequently so paying over 20 bucks a pop ain't a good option for my cheap @ss.......

    I like the Sram PC 48. You even get that cool little quick connect link so you can take your chain off and clean it, if you're into that sort of thing.

    I run SRAM PC69 on all my bikes, cheap and durable.
