    Cool-blue Rhythm Which Alfine chain?

    Hi, my good old Karate Monkey is going to be alfined soon. Is there any specific chain to use? Will any single speed chain do?

    Cheers

    I use a SRAM SS chain on my Pugs with Alfine.

    Any single speed chain is fine. I'm using a K710SL. A SRAM PC-7x chain would be a good chain as well. The SRAM PC-1 is crap.

    I'd go 6/7/8spd chain. Lighter than a SS chain and plenty strong.

    I assume you mean 9 speed chain.
    Actually the Alfine cranks specs from the Shimano web page recommend 9 speed chain

    - Double chainguard integrated design
    - OCTALINK splined axle crank arm interface
    - Use with CN-HG53 super narrow chain
    - 9-speed compatible chainrings
    - Chainring sizes: 39T, 45T
