Currently @ work, I am wanting to buy a chain. Anyone happen to know the amount of links? I'd appreciate it.

If staying the same sprockets, you should be 114-115 links. Most chain kits come at 120 links, and you have to cut it down. Just don't forget to count the master and pick the correct link before you cut!!!

Bored? Looking for info? Check here: www.tremonte.tv

I have this same issue. shop told me the chain was bad when it had like 4k miles on it in total. I decided just to keep running it for a bit. It is starting to kink fairly bad now even when i keep it lubed. Will be upgrading chain and sprockets soon.

I waited too. Not a good idea. When it fails you'll get bucked off. Be careful. I bought a xring chain. Haven't had a problem.
