    No you're not gonna die, plus if your chainline isn't perfect it will make less noise

    Use 1/8" chain and live a long healthy life.

    You will die but not from that combo.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    this will definitely happen unless you have all 1/8" track specific parts

    I don't think 3/32 is NJS approved. You may not be allowed to participate in Keirin races. Therefore, you will surely die.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    It's a simple algorithm:

    1/8" chain and 1/8" cogs/chainrings = no prob.
    1/8" chain and 3/32 cogs/chainrings = no prob.
    3/32" chain and 1/8" cogs/chainrings = FAIL.

    Correction:
    3/32" chain and 1/8" cogs/chainrings = CERTAIN DEATH
