I've had three bike which were bought with "Z" chains (not sure of the make, they have a Z sptamped
on every link). In each case there were persistent shifting problems. In each case swapping for the
cheapest Sram chain fixed the problem.
I have snapped a PowerLink on the bent (9sp), but the one on the wedgie is still going strong after
most of a year and some thousands of miles (8sp). I think chain quality probably makes more of a
difference on 9sp than on 8sp.
Not having tried anything other than the horrible Z things and Sram, I can't say further than that.
I wonder if you wouldn't mind piecing out our imperfections with your thoughts; and while you're
about it perhaps you could think when we talk of bicycles, that you see them printing their proud
wheels i' the receiving earth; thanks awfully.http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk/09.shtml#103 http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk/09.shtml#104
