    A New Shimano SS Chain?

    I saw this chain on a 2009 Trek 69. There were several links that had "FG" stamped the back; otherwise no one knew if it was new or maybe part of the Alfine gruppo. Any one know about it?

    Its been around for while I think, I’ve only seen it once before though and as I recall it was some kind of chain for beech cruisers or choppers, something like that anyway. Nice looking chain I think…

    Ugh. A chain is for turning cogs, not be jewelry. Looks way wrong to me and I'm a sucker for blingy bits.

    If it's stronger and lighter I'll happily swallow my words.

    I wish they'd make a 135mm SS cassette hub.
    Ride more!

    Found it! It’s part of the Shimano Coasting group, don’t know how to get one though…

    Is it me or is the fifth link from the right on the upper run different from all the rest?
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I have seen this chain in person, and it is very wide with thick (i.e. heavy) outer plates. This is not the chain for you unless you are also the type of person that wears gaudy chains around your neck.
