Yep, that is the size. I was told by SU that Renolds and Regina are the only ones currently making this odd chain size. But it you could look into the Wipperman option please do. No rush as the riding is almost over anyway for this season.

But how would a new chain wear so rapidly? It is always oiled (as is the rest of the bike 😉 ) and I also periodically put the chains in a tin of melted chain grease.

I do agree on the magneto issue on a 3 speed Scott. Eddie Shermer and I both converted to a toothed belt independendly at about the same time and that works absolutely fine. Does look a bit out of place but with the alloy covers no one notices. You just set it up once and thats it.

Cheers,
Erik
