    You arn't looking for advice but I recomend you do not buy this chain. Its great for what its intended for, BMX style grinding, but its the loudest heaviest most overkill thing I've ever put on a fixed gear bike. Mine now sits in a bag at the botom of a parts box. Also you can't use a standard chain tool to shorten it. Did I mention its SUPER loud?

    Tell us about your catastrophic chain faillure and we'll tell you why it wasn't the chain's fault.
    A wild man once explained to me how bicycles came from sailboats.

    Yeah, that chain is total overkill. I use a Wipperman Whitestar, and that thing is a beast that I don't think Tom Boonen himself could break. Go with something like that.

    Yet another thread title that's so close to being functional but was made useless by a "...".

    Get the Whitestar. More than what's required.

    Avoid KMC at all cost

    Is this a thread where we all say something we want to buy? Or where we talk the OP into/out of some decision they should make on their own?

    You can get one here (in several colors).

    But you should really get the SRAM PC-1 instead.
