What chain to use

Postby Luke65 » 16 Jun 2016, 06:23

Can anyone help me please? I run a crupi 44t chain ring in the front and a 16t Chrisking cassette on the back. I have had a few problems with the chain because I used a 3/32 chain and it worked fine but one day the links came apart causing me to crash and then I tired a different 3/32 chains and it made this horrible grinding noise and then I got told that I was using the wrong size chain so I tired a 1/8 and that didn't seem to work either so can anyone help me and recommend a chain that works well with Chrisking and crupi or tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks Luke

what size chain ring and sprocket gear you got ??
3/32 are the thin ones and 1/8th are the wider types..
i run KMC chains get them for around £7 posted off ebay
also shimano do a decent chain again similar price..

don't get fooled in to paying over £10 for a chain unless it's gold plated, do your homework first,
