    O-ring chain is NO stronger,but it will retain oil in the pins better than std chain.That being said oil wont get into the pins easily either.A good quality manufacturer will use good steel and you wont get excessive stretch or pin wear as some cheap no name stuff.There is a slight width difference in o-ring but most applications are not that tight of tolerance.

    i ..like i'm sure other members , have tried o ring chain . i don't remember getting that much more life out of it than good quality regular chain. and i always wondered if the o rings keep dirt and water out of the pins , then how does chain lube get in there. you can also buy lube-free oil impregnated roller chain ( more money). in terms of type of chain needing different type gears .. i think that means # 50 chain won't fit on a # 60 sprocket as a example . maybe someone will correct me if i'm missing something. type of chain means the no. , not the brand i think . my max 2 uses # 60 chain and i have bought different brands..all fit ..just different quality . j.b.

Most of what I found online was over the top super in depth mathematical/scientific analysis of chain designs, sizes, pitch, strengths, wear tendencies etc. and albeit kinda interesting and very educational, I didnt have the time lately to go that deep into it. Anyway, what you provided was exactly what I was looking for and I greatly appreciate it. Thanks Cup
