    I normally just bung on a SRAM 8-speed and replace when worn.

    I’m using a KMC from Charlie The Bikemonger – couple of years old at least now and still looks like new if a do ever wipe it over.

    Happy with the KMC X8 I’ve got on my SS. Did 7 months SSing on the commuter, now done a few hundred miles on the MTB.

    Plus it’s shiny.

    KMC i like,….. seems not to rust after washing and not lubing like other brands.

    i think its a Z610HX I’ve got on at the moment. Checking my inbox, I certainly bought one in feb 2012, so maybe its lasted longer than I realised.

    Alternative seems to be the KMC X1, but is it really worth nearly 3 times as much?

    Actually, the other alternative is to get it all converted to belt-drive, but that’s another issue…

    I need to replace whatever piece of elastic I seem to have fitted now. Seems to have lasted about 6 months…

    What’s hot and what’s not? Needs to be 3/32″ as its going on the Rohloff (wish they did a 1/8″ sprocket).

    Sorted.
