Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

New chainring, What chain

I just put a new chaining on my Bianchi San Jose. A 48T Miche, which was the eonly one I could find with 135 BCD to match my also new Campy cranks. Anyway it is 1/8" the new chain I picked up to go with it is 3/32. The mathematically astute will quickly realize my dilemna. What size chain do I need to get?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
