I'm in need of a new chain for the SS and I'm going to get something SS specific Either KMC410h or Sram PC-1. Or even the KMC 710 But my guess is that the heavier chain plates may cause some trouble.

What things should/do I need to be aware of with these two chains.

Will hopefully at the same time buy atleast a rear no ramped cog of about 16 tooth (slightly to big, but thats the idea), then a front 34 to 38 alot of that will depend on which cranks I choice to run on it. Currently a old pair of XT square tapers the others are a FiveD truvativ ISIS that I needed the BB for the fully :paranoid:

My Pc1 has been awesome, never skipped a beat. the joining plate is easy to use to. ive been using it on a ss cog and a raceface ramped chainring, which is now totally munted, so definately the non ramped etc option.

Does the PC-1 not use a powerlink?

Ive always just used 8 speed chains (PC 850's) and never had a problem.

You don't have to use the Powerlink on a PC-1. You can safely join it with a chaintool.

PC-1 uses a plate connector. Nice and shiney and heavy :)
