    Chain Recommendations?

    I am currently running an ENO Crankset with a Chris King Stainless Cog. That said I need to know what the best chain to use is. I tried to put on a SRAM 8spd. today and it fit the King Cog PERFECTLY but the spacing wasn't quite right on the White Industries Chainring.

    Recommendations?

    Thank you all in advance,

    PF

    The dozens of other threads on this topic see the KMC and SRAM chains most recommended.

    something is amuck.
    8 spd chains are 3/32 chains - 3/32 chains (be they CALLED 8spd or singlespeed) make for the best single speed chain (in my opinion).

    unless there is wear on the chain or the ring of some unnatural or generally expired nature they should all marry together quite nicely.


    can you describe your spacing issue a little more clearly? pictures?

    I'm using the same White Industries carnk and Chris King cog and have no problems with the Sram 870 chain.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Like it just fine! Using it with a 34T Surly SS steel chainring, and a White Industries ENO freewheel. No fit issues of any kind.

    worn ring?

    I'm also using a WI ENO crank and King cog. I run SRAM 8-speed chains and replace them as soon as they show any wear on a Park chain checker. I'm guessing your chainring is probably worn. Mine's about due too....
    If white is the "new black", then thanks but I'll stick with the old black...
