I paid £55+vat and as it came from SRM I was expecting it to be good quality. I was surprised at the amount of free play in the links though. I have sent a video link to SRM showing the play, probably get a response tomorrow.

Does this help identify it.?


sometimes a hint is if the chain is stamped on EVERY link ............often budget chains are only stamped on every few links ........like every 6th one or similar

is your chain stamped on every link?

Most of the links are stamped with the same wording. I'm not in any doubt that this is a genuine Renolds chain it's just the very accurate amount of side play built in to every link that I'm curious about. It's been made with about 1mm of lateral play in every link.

I've got one of Andy Chainman's primary chains on my T120 race bike. As I understand, it's actually a timing chain for, some model Mercedes Benz?
Anyway, very stout chain. 2 seasons on it so far, has not stretched or seized any links. It's larger in every dimension. I was worried that it would tend to gouge the inside of the case because of the thicker section but that has not been the case. Another worry was that there was barely enough play when installed to the point that I completely removed the adjuster. It has slightly less than 3/8" up and down movement and this has not changed in 2 race seasons. Its definitely heavier so those who want to squeeze every fractional horsepower won't like it but for a reliable low maintenance racebike, I'd recommend it.
I believe I paid about $80 shipped from GB.

I have some old Renold triplex chains from circa 2000-2005, so long before the Stockport factory closed down.
They are marked 'Renold 06-B Synergy', and supplied with a soft link , bagged and marked 'Renold Synergy 116038-107'
The chain is boxed, as per your photos, but with a slightly different label.

Some people are fine with BS industrial chain, as are many dealers in supplying it. Plus, it tends to be cheaper. The manufacturers however, tend to be a little more cautious when it comes to warranty.
