Dura Ace chain on a kids MTB?

Postby GrumpySmurf » Fri Oct 21, 2011 3:13 pm

Can I use my used Dura Ace (7900) chain on a 6-speed (Shimano) kids mountain bike?

Why ? K mart sell perfectly good 6 speed chains for kids bikes.

I think it should work. I have used 9 speed chains on a 7 speed.

Opps used chain doesn't seem such a waste. :oops:

Compare the gauge of the 2 chains and if it's similar it should work ok...
U may find the 10sp DA chain is a bin narrower, and if so then it won't work.... Or won't work real well...
