Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

D.I.D. NJS cert. chain - any info?

okay - I've got a NJS certified chain, all silver, made by a company called D.I.D. Anyone know anything about these guys? I did some searching and found they still exist, but only seem to make motocycle chains now.

so, do I have something really cool, or a peice of crap?

I still have a few, they are amongst the best. They have been used for World and Olympic track titles and world records, good enough for you?

Takizawa (the NJS Performance of Japan) has DID chains in their online store:

I had a DID chain on my BMX and loved it. Where can I buy one in the US?

I had one until it was stolen, along with the rest of the bike...
From the amount of time I did have it, it killed the mid-range Izumi njs chain.
