    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?
