Chain for Brompton M6L

Hello all,

I'm trying to find which SRAM chain to order for my Brompton M6L. The manual says it's the "SRAM PC 10", but which one? The SRAM line includes many PC 10xx models. Other sources say to use a 7 speed chain. Does anyone know the exact chain I need? Thanks!

You can use ANY 8-speed or up chain, all will work.

Just some quick info, the SRAM PC10 is not a 10-speed chain - however, the PC10xx models are. Very confusing.

As someone else mentioned, any 8-speed chain will work.

Roughly. the cogs are 2mm thick, so 3 /32" wide is the right Idea. Chains come as 5,6,7,8, these days .
it's All good.

the 3 speed ones are 3mm thick .. 1/8"

Thanks all! As luck would have it I have an extra new 8 speed chain laying around that I can use. Sometimes you get lucky.
