    Do not bother. The half link chins wear prematurely. And the shadow conspiracy chain tends to snap. Just get a kmc K710 SL.

    Have the shadow conspiracy chain on the dirt jumper and absolutely despise it.

    Also, given the complete lack of any information about the components on the bike, it would be impossible for us to know if it would fit. Example: Are there any load bearing decals on the chainring? These can sometimes change the fit of a chain.

    I highly recommend this Whipperman chain /\

    Like stated above, half-link chains tend to suck and stretch prematurely. These Whipperman chains take a beating though. I run one on my Bmx bike as well and I've had no problems at all.

    I agree. I tried half link, can't remember the brand, I prefer even cheap regular chains. My theory is that when you take a thing that's going to spend its life in tension, and put a kink in it, all it wants to do is straighten that kink.

    Though I am only guessing at this I think the wear is because the plates are S shaped, hence when the flatten out the distance between the Rollers gets wider. Most of the DJ kids I know hate them because they constantly drop their chains (no adjustably) as they stretch out
