I believe there is a greater chance of snapping narrow chains. Avoid hollow lightweight chains? I run 7, 8. I avoid 9 but may just be paranoid (lightweight rider).
One reason is I do trials riding on apt size rock cliffs over the ocean. A snapped chain would be really bad news.
I have yet to purchase ($$) and I have to wait 'till I wear the current wears out-
Whipperman Connex 808 (7-8 spd).
You may be opening a can of wurms, I debated this in the mtb forum once and it got a little hot!
