    Sounds like the Koxx and Echo chains, is it the same as a Kool chain but thinner?

    I know a guy who runs one of those chains, it snapped once ... after 1 year of abuse. At that price you can get the KMC Kool and you`re worries-free for at least 1 year :D

    But I can't get hold of KMC Kool, the shop has only this one + I want gears(actually I need only two). This guy ran KMC Kool or Z92? If it lasts a year than it's great, chain snapping viedos convinced me to change my chain every 6 months :)

    the kmc chains are the shiznit. had one for bout 8 months and that was swapped between a few different frames with a chain tool rather than powerlink. that was a standard z link. the koxx chain im on now its proper niggerific.

    The 810 is an 8 speed chain. That will work with gears for sure. Just don't try to run it with a 10 speed cassette.

    There are two different "cool chains". The one Koxx sells is narrow, but there is another wider one for BMX or singlespeed as well.
