Well, for the time being I've just used a piece of PC-59 chain that I had clipped from my old chain
when I got the Rholoff. It's not new, but not as worn as my old chain. The old chain had stretched
enough that I needed an extra cog to keep it reasonably taught, so that's an overall stretch of at
least half an inch, and perhaps more like 3/4ths (since the chain was a little loose). It's funny, I
had just had it checked at a bike shop two weeks before I noticed it was sloppy and my measurements
just prior to installing the new chain indicated a stretch of about 3/32nds per foot. I probably
need to get something measures stretch more accurately. The stretch came on pretty suddenly too. I
had been using this chain for a *long* time.
