    Hi forum members.

    There was a post a couple of weeks ago that spoke of a lower price chain from the Tractor Supply Company. The chain was pretty close to the standard #415 chain.

    Does anyone remember the post? I’m looking for it. If anyone knows the chain no. or has the link, I sure would appreciate it.

    Thanks for all of your help

    Just wanted to chime in with a review on this chain to add to the thread :),,
    I bought 10 ft of the tractor supply chain today,,looks like good HD stuff,,the rollers are alot better quality than the kit chain,plus ALOT less flex.It was the #41 I paid 19.99 for 10ft.enough to do another bike or two if need be,no clearance issues either.Took the bike for a 20 mile rip and the chain barley even slacked up any,,great chain so far for the money,,think it is marked TKS or something like that???,,i remember that brand from when I was little with mini bikes,go-karts,and dirt bikes,,it was great chain!

    Good times....

    Tom :)

    I also bought 10 ft of #41 chain from tsc, and I'm using it on my 98cc cruiser. Been almost 4 weeks now, chain is working out great. It stretched a little, but luckily I have a spring loaded tensioner, so it hasn't been a problem. If I notice too much slack in the chain, I just move the tensioner back a little.

    Chain wear, or chain stretch, becomes an issue with extensive cycling. Although the overall effect is often called "stretch", chains generally wear through attrition of the bushings (or half-bushings, in the Sedis design) and not by elongation of the sideplates.

    Good reading there,,
    As a kid I knew they never stretched,,I always just thought the rollers broke in more after use causing the need for adjustment,,guess i was close..lol

    I just use #40 hd from the local hardware store. Way better than stock and cheap! One box gives two bikes worth.
