Campagnolo record 8 cassette and chain. What size chain?

Hi Everyone,

I am replacing my Campagnolo 8 speed cassette and chain 12-23 tooth from a mirage drivetrain from '93. What size chain should I get?

Either an 8 speed or 9 speed should work fine.

I always use a SRAM PC830 on my bike, they are cheap and work good.

I like the KMC chains, the connectors are brilliant (makes removal easy, for cleaning) and they're not expensive.

The KMC X8 99 8 Speed Chain should work for you, 20eur on chainreaction.

8 and 9 speed chains will both work fine, and the Record 9 speed chain is really nice (worth the few dollars extra, in my opinion).
