    At $300.00 (USD) + shipping it's gotta be the Wippermann Ti.!!!
    (As it says in the add: "The ultimate racing chain") And it's OooSoo light! :D


    "Wippermann ConneX Titanium
    The ultimate racing chain. Titanium rollers and hollow link pins make this our lightest chain ever – just 235 grams (11O links).
    Available in 9 and 10 speed. $299.95

    Since chains are a consumable, the best chain is the most economical one -- there really aren't any
    performance differences. I like the SRAM chains since they come with a connector.

    Like oil for yer car, the least expensive compatible chain. Keep it clean, change it about like you
    would hopefully change the oil in your car, 'about' every 3000 miles or so.

    I think they put one in the tip of every smart bomb we drop. Something about the cost of the bomb
    being exactly $399.99 shy of $1mil.

    For what parameters? There is no "one best chain" for all applications any more than there's any
    "one best tire".

    But I prefer this one:

    http://www.oregondealer.com/aerialequipment/merchant.cfm?pid=120&step=4

    Getting sprockets is a challenge, but I find that using this on a bent with a pedals-forward layout
    is very effective for ensuring that people get out of the way, and with the bike up on a stand, I
    can cut firewood for the evening.

    No chains used on a bicycle stretch. The pitch elongates as it wears. This not not really a matter
    of semantics.

    It probably shifts very well once you find proper sprockets. The _chain_ itself is ramped.

    It's perfect for 'bents: it comes in 100 foot reels!

    What do you mean, Kent? Are you saying that bike chains
    do stretch?

    This is a technical newsgroup, so accuracy in speech has
    some value.

    I'm using a PC99 (EUR 32,-)on my cyclocross, and a PC89R hollow pin (EUR 36.-) for my traithlonbike. the best chains I think (better than Shimano and campa chains)
