    colored KMC chains.. a mess?

    I got a white KMC z chain off ebay and i took it out to look at it and after i was done handling it I had small chips of white paint on my hands. Has anyone used a colored KMC chain? Do all those paint chips end up all over your chain ring, crank, etc?

    A white chain? Isn't it going to be grime colored a mile out the door anyway?

    The flakes you got on your hands may have been because they didn't clean the chain well enough after coloring / before packaging it.
