    KMC Chain question

    Hello all,

    I have been using KMC Z410NPs and Z610HXs for quite some time. They seem to be a great bang-for-your-buck item and have given me no reason to look elsewhere for my chain needs.

    I am building up a bike that would look good with a black chain and I see that the Z410 is available in black. My question is, what is the black? Anodized? High quailty paint? Some other color treatment? Crappy paint?

    Any info is much appreciated.

    Black KMC chains are painted. The finish seems to be pretty durable though.

    Thanks. That's what I was wondering about. I don't want one if it is going to shed paint flakes, which would be the same as dirt.

    I've never seen that happen in my life.
