Wink Chains and sprockets, sprockets and chains.

If you type "chains" or "sprockets" into the search bar just above, there are a lot of posts on this very subject.
I don't find much difference in whichever I buy, but I don't buy the cheapest either.

What he said^^^.

I think I gave around $130 for mine with JT Steel sprockets. What I liked about it , was it was already 118 links instead of the usual 120, so saved me a little time cutting off and pressing out one link. I usually get 20K-25K miles out of mine.
