Hi Brian,

The Renolds chain I use now was very strongly recommended by Sprockets Unlimited. It is new old stock british made Renolds and NOT the modern kind (of which Sprockets Unlimited do indeed not have a very high opinion).
For the primary drive there currently is no other chain than the Renolds I have now and the Regina I have used before. Says SU and I trust they know. The Regina was even worse. That has split rollers that start breaking after about 700 miles. In fact I had to change my almost new chain at Abbotsholme last year because of this.

So I am not speaking about my magneto chain. That one seems to last indefinitely so far.

Cheers,
Erik
