Chains and Links

Fixed gear and singlespeed bikes can use either 1/8" or 3/32" chain.

This page shows the wider 1/8" size. This size is traditionally used on track bikes, one speeds, three speds and other bikes that don't have derailers.

For the narrower 3/32" size, as used on derailer bikes, click here.

Note: The all of the chains on this page will work with either 1/8" or 3/32"single-speed sprockets/chainrings.

Good quality, reliable chain, nickel plated to resist rust.

SRAM PC-7X 1/8" Chain CH1008 $21.95 buy button

High quality, reliable chain, reinforced plates, chrome hardened pins.

Offset Links CH002 $4.95 buy button

If you are having trouble fitting the desired gears onto a bike with vertical dropouts, this link will let you add or subtract 1/2 a link (1/2 inch) from your chain, allowing you to move the axle 1/4" forward or backward. Different brands of chain have different diameter rivets; these links do not fit all 1/8" chains, but they do fit the models listed above.
