Default Re: Narrow sprocket and chain- Not recommended here

Hmmm. Did you just 'throw' the chain or did it break? I've been using BMX bicycle chain
for a thousand or so miles and no breakage. I do run it with a different setup tho (CVT).
And I use a spring loaded tensioner to keep it from bouncing around and I like the way it
seats deep onto the sprockets. The 41 chain I started out with was alright but had a lot
of side to side slop on the sprockets and would occasionally get thrown off of them. Strengthwise,
BMX chain is holding up well.
My 2 cents worth.
...I'm not saying we should just kill all the stupid people. Just do away with warning labels and let things sort themselves out.
