Then I found the TRIKE chain a few months back- same 415 pitch and width, but with much more minimal plates and much better inner rollers than a kit chain- so it weighs half as much and rolls easier and quieter- you can really tell pedalling.

a slight stretch upon the first use and then with one adjustment I've been running it without a problem- got one on both builds- I think they were less than $13 shipped.
Have you tried this on the shifter kit? I think the chain is 3/16'' wide as apposed to the 1/8''. does this size fit the front freewheel?
