What chain is the best for trials because i am getting fed-up with my snapping chain.

I snapped my chain today and it was a koolchain

I also found that the koolchain can be a little heavy as i am trying to keep the weight down

thanks

It has to be a KMC cool chain.

Mine never snaped, It lasted ages, I had to et a new one beaseu it got to old and I had no more drop out for it to pull into tension it had streched so much.

All in all it is a great chain.

Has my Vote.

How Tight or loose was yur chain?

I run the chain tight enough not to rattle but loose enough so it bends esily when pushed by hand so it is the right tension - i think i am just unlucky

i used to snap loads of chain but i havent recntly as i have been careful when putting them together,plus i oil regular too.i founds khe kollapse cains to be good ,but i stopped using them once i got tensioner issues.

I do lubricate my chain a little so each link moves smoothly. i work in the workshop in a bikeshop so i have my hands on all lubricants so i know that is not the problem.

Do you make sure you have the chain joined proply when you join it?

Could be a weak link.

Hope I helped.

KMC 810 or 710.

Also learn to use your body ( right preload on gaps for examlpe ) to do the tricks, because it's a great pressure on chain when you use only a pedal.
