    Broke chain on GF Rig (cross post)

    I have a 2010 GF Rig. The chain is a SRAM PC-1 chain. I am guessing that it is a 1/8 chain. I have done a lot of searching and it sounds like the SRAM 8-speed chain would also work on the Rig.

    My question is which is better, SRAM PC-1 or SRAM 8-speed? They are both 1/8. They would both work. What is the difference between the two? Does the powerlink work on both? Which should I purchase?

    I ride with the KMC SS chain.
    but as far as i know the pricing is not high on neither.
    so stay with what you had until now.
    assuming you were happy with it...

    The PC-1 chain was fine except I don't think it supports the powerlink. Not sure about that. So, if thats the case, I'd rather go with another compatible 1 speed chain that supports a powerlink type of quick link that does not require a tool. I do carry a chain tool with me when I ride but I guess I'm spoiled with the powerlink.

    Does the kmc 510 support some kind of powerlink? I like the powerlinks for the ease of trail repair.

    SRAM 8 spd, or any brand 8 spd for that matter, is 3/32 not 1/8.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm switching to an 8 speed chain.
