Retro rejoinable chain availability?

Postby kenwstr » Tue Jul 15, 2014 7:48 pm

I'd like to get a kind of chain we used in the 60s/70s. They had a break link with a clip on one side. You just uncliped and slid the link out. It was easy to clean and reinstall. These were used with fixies, freewheels, hub gears etc. Are they available new anywhere?

Yes, pretty much all single-speed (1/8" wide) chains still have ye olde joining link with the circlippy thing.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
