so when i order my new frame this next week... im going to be buying a new chain because they one i have right now sucks.... have broke it 3 times haha... but anyways. I was looking at the kmc 710sl. i asked my friend about since he has it. he said to get the gold one since it is electroplated so it makes it so it doesn't stretch as much... it makes sense to me. does it makes sense to you guys?

How would electro plating cause the chain to not stretch? I am pretty sure electro-plating is when they electrify the metal with a low current and material transfers onto it, bonding to the metal. Basically it is using electric current to "paint" the metal with a colored plating. It won't really make it any stronger.

Maybe you had it on upside down, it's a directional chain....

Anyways, don't be such a whore for weight and get the 710 kool. It's almost half as much money, and it won't break. As easily...


All chains will, eventually, break. It's a fact of life, kids. You use your chain a lot. When you use something a lot/too much, it has problems(breaks).
