I have a Redline Monocog 29er and I'm replacing the drive train. The bike's purpose is to be abused off-road. For the new chain, I'm debating between the SRAM PC-1 Single-Speed Chain ($6.39) and the KMC Z610HX ($15.76) I'm wondering what, if anything, the more expensive KMC chain would offer? Would it wear longer? Is it stronger? Will the cheaper one snap when I'm standing up and cranking hard?
Some forum posters recommend just using an old worn one off of a geared bike?? Is that advisable?
