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)

KMC K710 or K710SL

What is better for a road fixed application? Is the lighter version any weaker. As far as I can tell there is a 63 gram difference in weight, does that justify the $6 dollar price difference?

its only 6 dollars...

but honestly if imo if you work on your bike a lot i wouldnt recommend the k710sl. i have both chains but the k710 is sold and beefy. the k710sl imo its only fault is the hallow pins. i ran mine without the masterlink. and the chain tool seems to mushroom out the pin and leaves a slight bind since the link isnt as smooth as the rest of the links.

but its jus a chain imo the z chain or izumi standard chains do the job the same

710SL, just get silver, the colors aren't worth the extra price.

The $6 dollar price difference I was listing was for the silver sl. Anyone think the non sl looks cooler with the silver on black?
