I forgot to mention that the UG "Narrow Chain" was just narrow compared to old 5 speed and regular spaced 6 speed chain. Any 7 speed chain is the same width as the old 6 speed narrow, they just don't bother calling them narrow anymore, since no one has sold a bike with the older, wide spaced freewheels or cassettes in almost 30 years. In practice, the narrower chains work great, even for older, wider spaced freewheels, but some times they are a bit too flexible for good shifting. (Most of my bikes are 5 and 6 speed with wide spaced freewheels, but I use 7 speed chains on them exclusively.)
