In the Market for New Chain and Sprockets Staff
by Staff
My current chain has lasted 20,000 miles; it's just the basic run-of-the-mill O-ring chain.

Should I bother spending the money on getting a pricey 200.00$ chain? It seems like the only advantage is less frequent chain adjustments since they stretch less. Or is there something else I'm missing? Am I just lucky that this one has lasted so long? What's the real world difference between the different types of chains? I know that the lubrication works differently but from a functional perspective do I care? Thanks.
