I saw strongest chain and it reminded me of this: http://www.bikes.com.au/p/1139721/ybn-bf410-heavy-duty-chain.html
Put one on a bike at work the other day, there's no way it is going to snap. Took almost 10min to shorten it to the right length with our chainbreaker.

WOAH Blank Stare In the U.S the federal impala frame is around $320 , converted to UK it makes it £195 . But in the UK they sell the impala for £300 , therefore its cheaper in the US Smile

kmc 710. the ody bluebird is just a kmc 510.. not worth paying the extra for the brand.

^ Thats true and kmc are the worst brand for chains... if you want something strong and pretty damn cheap then id say ybn kool. Only chain i havent snapped or stretched to date and i rain it on 25-9 gearing for about 8 months.

shut up muppet.
kmc makes 90% of the chains youve ever riden. they are then re-branded by other companys and on sold.

kmc 710 and you will never complain again.

Yeah kmc makes most chains, my ybn however is holding up super well but a kmc 710 or 710sl are pretty good

kmc are the way foward, shadows are super strong but the wreck your driver and gusset's snap everyone i know who's had one has snapped it.

yeah and most chains they make are shit! i have ridden like 3 different kmc chains and i have snapped every single one! so f*ck off! if you want a strong halflink then a shadow v2 or dk exo and a normal link then get a ybn.
