I need a new chain, and have read threads about o-ring and x-ring chains, but I don't plan to use either. I won't be running the wheels off of the old girl, and don't want to worry about clearance issues. That said, I still want to install a quality chain. Thanks for recommendations!

Clean-up is coming along nicely. Really pleased with the progress on the bike, and equally pleased by the overall fine condition of everything as the years of dirt and grime fall away.

Pay him enough and he'll put his name to a rubber band.

I’m getting good service from an IWIS from the Chain Man.

My maintenance regime is “keep it oily.”

I've been buying DID normal duty sort of bike chain. Good stuff, never disappointed. Some of the non o-ring chain out there, if it says some kind of super heavy duty it can be almost too fat and might rub. Or almost rub.

Funny how people become “fans” of people and dish out devastating sarcasm in defence of their idol!

Celebrity testimonials are just a game that pays, for celebrities and an advert for the product.
