Ok, I've never had to buy a new chain and I'm not entirely sure what kind to buy.
My bike came with Shimano 105 levers, derailers, and crankset and a SRAM (not sure of model) 9 speed cassette. I don't know what brand the current chain is (it has a Z on every few links, if that helps).
Do I need a Shimano chain, a SRAM chain, or does it not matter?
Videogames ruined my life. Good thing i have 2 extra lives.
Giant TCR2, Giant TCX, IRO BFSSFG SE, Salsa Casseroll, IRO Rob Roy.
Wippermann Connex 908 chain. ~$35-40 and comes with the quicklink. I have yet to use it, but i've got 2 of them at home waiting to be installed along with a bunch of extra quicklinks (to keep in my saddle pouch just in case).

I always thought the best chain out there used to be made by Rohloff. Does that chain still exist and being sold? I simply remember it as expensive but well worth every single penny...
They still make/offer 8 and 9-speed chains. Only the 9-speed chains are available in the states...although you really have to look to find somebody that sells them or is willing to special order it for you. For Rohloff 8-speed chains, you have to order either from Europe or Australia (prices and shipping is cheaper from Australia).
