    New question here. What type of chain to use with a Boone Ti cog and Salsa ring?

    I'm currently using a SRAM PC-99 chain and would like to know if a stronger chain can be used with that setup.

    Any suggestions?

    9sp OK here

    I'm using the same set up with a SRAM 9sp chain with no problems. and I weigh 220lbs. 8 or 9 will both be fine!

    Does 1/128" make a difference on a single speed?

    According to tech references, the minimum tensile strength of the chain isn't compromised (which would be my main concern).

    Stronger than a PC99? Maybe. I had my share of issues with a PC99 Hollowpin and currently use a regular PC99 with no incidents so far.

    Only wanted to know if a stronger chain (bmx) will be better.
