    Wippermann Connex 9s1... partial or full S.S.?

    Does any one know for a fact if the Wippermann Connex 9s1 "stainless steel" 9 speed chain is 100% stainless steel, or if only the pins and internal plates are stainless steel?

    Thanks!

    Amazon.com offers the chain (currently not available), and they describe it as being 100% stainless, which may be inaccurate. As far as I know, the 9S1 does not have a cutout outer plate as described by Amazon...

    Just as the Wippermann Connex 10TR "Titanium" 10 Speed Chain is only partially fashioned out of titanium, the Wippermann Connex 9S1 "Stainless" 9 Speed Chain, & the Wippermann Connex 10S1 "Stainless" 10 Speed Chain are not fashioned of 100% stainess steel.

    In the latter two chains cited, the external plates are zinc plated steel, not stainless steel... These chains would more accurately be described as zinc plated steel chains with stainless internal links. I've been unable to ascertain the steel used for the pins...
