SFR Chains

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by fozzy, Sep 30, 2008.

  1. Any good?

    They're cheap - are they cheap and NASTY? :twisted:

  2. How cheap? Nam and his stunter mates run lengths of plain old industrial x-ring chain, clip linked, and they're perfectly happy. I think he was getting it for somewhere around fifty bucks a length. Those chains get flogged harder than your average rider's.

    Give them a crack and let us know how you go, dollar for dollar.
  3. 530 O rings I've seen as cheap as $40 on clearance.

    Not sure what to think - I might give one a crack on my existing sprockets (they're in good knick) and see how it goes.

    I have a nasty tight spot in my existing chain, so it cant be worse that that I'm sure.
  4. i have run the sfr chains. been through about 3 sets but like loz says, they get pretty abused with what we do. the side plates are soft - they stretch easily and you'll be adjusting tension regularly.

    but the last straw for me was when i found that the cross pins can flog out the side plate holes. the only thing holding that pin in place was the circlip holding it to the other pin! :shock: this is not from neglect of maintenance, it was totally unexpected.

    conclusion: spend more money on better gear.
