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)

Which chain is better between these two?

KMC Z410?

I have the 410 from my LBS recently for $6 and I have broken 2 plates when cutting the chain to size but they may have been faulty and the rest of the chain is in perfect working condition. even a cheap chain will work and last a long time if you lube it and keep the tension proper.
