Some sort of hipster fashion statement nonsense. I use the regular plain steel ones.

Yup. Just laziness. I do it properly - colour in with a felt-tip pen and touch up after every ride.

at $9 a throw for the SS who gives a damn, coloured, plated, I take whatever the shop has in stock. the dirt and grime takes care of the colour after a few weeks anyway.

C'mon guys surely you want something to match your socks. Suppose that's where the muck & grime come in. :) Is anyone going to own up to a coloured chain? Or is the risk too much?

ignore the 20" wheel, its just there while I was having a new rear wheel built. these are the left over bits of 6 commuter chains joined together, waste not want not. stronger and more reliable than any chain on a derailleur bike.

I have a gold one on my MTB. TiN for function though rather than anything cooler I am sorry.

I will only be getting TiN chains. It is a great coating and combined with the PE makes for a silent ride!

So guys how far would I get if I put a pink one on my LHT crossing P2S? Certainly not far in Boonie Land USA - crazy to wear Lycra there they throw bear cans at you.
