Default Re: chain maintenance

The 41 is just a lil wider so be careful if you have clearance issues - but yeah, the 415 supplied is usually total garbage. Mine was both twisted and wouldn't backbend freely so it'd "pop" going over the tensioner sometimes.

Best yet the rollers were 1/2 length - leaving the other half the pin exposed o_O I haven't seen that with other kit-supplied chains so mine was a defect... probably.

I've heard tell there is a "heavy duty" BMX chain that may be suitable, if so I'd love it if someone could gimmie some info (I'm sure it's here somewheres but I've not found it). While the 41 is a great chain, I think it overkill and my build is a very tight fit.

Reducing drag & noise is also always high on my priority list too
