Gold chain whose color lasts?
Stupid question (because fashion, not function):
I have a KMC z410 gold chain on my bike now and the gold has faded noticeably in a few weeks since i put it on (i just compared to the extra links i took out and it's noticeably duller). It's only been cleaned once with a citrus degreaser (i tried to avoid using mineral spirits/acetone/brakleen etc) and i'm only riding like 30 miles/week. Are there any chains that stay golder longer?
And yes, i am a hopeless poseur.
