    Looking for a gold chain

    There is a lot to read about 1/8 and 3/32 chains.

    I have a 08 Bianchi Sok 29er SS and have a Sram PC-1 on there now. I am running the stock Stylo 32T with a Surley 20T cog (think it says 3/32 on it but I think that is the base measurement). It works but I am looking for a gold chain.

    Questions:
    - do I need to look for a 3/32 chain
    - any decently priced chins out there? I know of the KMC 710SL and the D101 and/or D202

    3/32" or 1/8" will work fine, even if you're running 3/32" rings or cogs.

    DK Exo Halflink Chain
    KMC Gold Chain
    Mechanik Hollow Track Halflink Chain
    Mechanik Full Track Chain

    all come in gold!

    I would use the KMC personally. Easy to install, easy to work on, light and simple.

    Gold Chain

    Ral, if you have 3/32, get the D101 KMC. The 1/8 variety is shown here:

    I thought the D101 is a 1/8" chain...
    The D202 should be the 3/32".

    I think that I found my answer...

    I suppose I am looking for a 3/32" chain. Looks lie Surly updated their description on the cog and that it used a 3/32" 6 to 9 speed chain. The base of the cog is some 4.35 mm wide.

    I think that I have what I need now but any preferences?

    Thanks for the updates.
