    8 Speed IG (Interactive Glide) Chain Options?

    The recommended chain is Shimano CN-IG70, 1/2 x 3/32"

    Are there SRAM or KMC chains that will work as good as the CN-IG70? I'd prefer to get an SRAM because I understand they're easier to remove for cleaning.

    I have a 1997 Klein Pulse Comp in very good condition and based on the answers in this -
    thread http://forums.mtbr.com/general-discu...ng-983757.html I won't be changing the groupset.

    Looks like the IG70 is old stock only and going forward it would be nice to have options.

    Pretty much any of the KMC or SRAM 8 speed chains are just fine. Even the cheapo KMC Z8's work really well, but a couple of extra bucks for one of the fancier plated ones would be well spent for longevity. Almost all models from both companies come with a connector link for easy installation removal (a pair of Park MLP-1 pliers really helps with removal.)

    The shops I've been at over the last couple of years mostly order the SRAM & KMC interchangeably. I've put lots of both on bikes, they all shift well and don't break any more than anything else would if installed correctly.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.
