Dunno about cheapest but I got one of these:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=008&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=180116237846&rd=1&rd=1

The seller usually has plenty.

JS1500, that's a 9 spd you linked to. I've also been questing for a gold, 8 spd chain, and would give up and buy a 9 spd in a second if it'll function proper.

Jez,

Not sure if this is of any use but...

Always used to run a Sedis Gold chain on my Avalanche. That was 7 sp though and not ti-nitride blah, but they crop up quite often on you know where...

That's not really helped you at all has it...

If you keep checking ebay for Wippermann chains, they made an 8-speed gold chain just a few years ago.

I've not been on a long ride with it yet but it seems to work fine on my 8 - speed setup.
I though 8 & 9 speed were the same spacing?

9 speed chains are narrower. 9 speed cassette fits in the same space as an 8 speed because the sprockets are closer together hence needs a narrower chain. 9 speed front mechs are also a bit narrower to compensate for this.

KMC X9 Gold is what you need Jez, depending on how much you wanna spend, got mine fairly cheap from somewhere on the internet, cheaper than ebay. My lady found it so will ask her where it was from and let you know.
