im just wondering. because i snap full links like its a piece of string

Never ridden a half link before always had full links and I've never snapped a chain but I'm always hearing about half links snapping so for me its a no brainer.

I do think half links look better tho


Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Who knows, pretty much any chain out there somebody will have a different experience with. Somebody will say that one chain is bombproof, another guy will say he's broke 5.

Well, good question, I've always ridden halflinks and the one thing I hate about them, referring to Shadow Interlocks is they snap on the pins way too easily.
Wait for the Oyyssey Keychain, supposedly one of the strongest chains for BMX after the Wipperman.

Got half link, both guards so no problems, never snapped. Don't feel a difference tho, the good thing is just to remove a half link when time to shorten. I can move the master pin with my fingers tho, I just ignore it just like all my other problems in life.

Arent full links meant to be stronger in general? Well I've got a full link, yet to break and looks better than half links. I can put it on anyway i like and its on the right way also

Full links are stronger in my experience, and they don't stretch. Half links stretch a shit ton and aren't worth the money at all.

You only need ONE Half Link to adjust your gearing in your Drop Outs. Half Link Chains are purely Aesthetics, there is nothing special about them that makes them any better than a Full Link Chain with one Half Link. As Ohioan mentioned Half Link Chains stretch REALLY bad & as i mentioned they are not any stronger. I am with AndyFerly wait for the Odyssey Key Chain! It isn't gunna be cheap but it will be the best chain on the market! I'm pretty sure it will last forever! Last Chain you will ever have to buy (Unless you decide you want to replace it!)

Topsey knows his shit. Listen to him


I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

Yeah I feel you guys but this is my old chain and I had to improvise it just to ride Photo

Get an Odyssey Bluebird. Had one for over a year and it never broke, and I only replaced it just to be safe.

If you have enough money, I LOVED this chain, when I get the chance again I am going to buy this chain... http://www.danscomp.com/products-PARTS/464010/KMC_K710-SL_Chain.html
