    Absolute Black oval ring with Endless cog - what chain?

    Too many options. I've seen Shawna (of Endless) runs Z410 chains (SS specific) and others running X10SL (10 speed), others running yada yada yada... Does anyone run the combo in the subject line and can it take a half link without getting chewed up or do I need rivet-only chain? If so, which speed? I don't want to spend ~$50 on a chain, but I don't want to thrash the $120 ring/cog setup either. Any advice to the SS driveline newbie?? Experience with this setup would be great - as would specific chain models suggestions would be splendid as well...

    No half link on an AB Oval ring. Even tooth count.

    So master links like PowerLink and Missing Link are ok?

    Any decent 10 speed chain...
    Half link chains are awful and should go away

    I've always used this chain with my AB rings, no problems ever.

    Fortunately I have a SRAM PC1031 on my workbench. From what I'm hearing, it's supposed to be one that should work ok with both the Endless cog and AB ring...
