Hi, I am now in the final throws of finishing my 1980 Mercian rebuild and just need to fit the tubs and buy a chain....

The thing is, what sort or size of chai do I need?

I am running full Campagnolo super record group set with a Suntour ultra 6 freewheel.

I am looking for a good quality chain in nice bright silver if possible.

Any 3/32 chain for 6/7 speed will be fine. Personally quite fond of KMC chains - good quality at a reasonable price.

+1!

I've got one of these KMC chains on my Raleigh and it runs and changes a dream.

Don't go for anything 'super-light' they just don't last :roll:

Connnex by Wippermann.

No discussion.

Stainless steel version if you are feeling flush.
