asked by: a guest I'm looking the screw and nut to "close" the chain. Do you sell these parts?
anwered by: smulder I'm sorry, currently we do not have a supplier that stocks that item. While we wish we could help you on that one you may want to check Ben's Cycle for "IZUMI Model-V / ESH Machine Screw and Nut"

This chain is awesome it looks fantastic on almost all bikes, super durable, super strong and the screw connecter is strong but I prefer to pin it, looks cleaner and I feel more secure because track racing and fixed gears put alot of strain on a chain. A chain break is the last thing you want worry about. I am 100% positive I wont have to worry about that with this chain!
Summed up: This chain is golden!!! As in very very good.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

I really like this chain. It is strong, easy to clean, and reliable.
I have never had a problem with the screw connector. Re-pinning it, on the other hand, is no fun, so I stick with the screw. If you tighten it properly and clean/check your chain regularly, you shouldn't have any issues with the connector coming apart and you shouldn't need locktite.
It's not particularly quiet, but then it's a 1/8th inch chain---half the fun is the sound.
Great Chain for a track bike, only ridden it a few times, but a chain is something you want to set and forget. After breaking an different style chain I listened to everyone and went with the best. So far not a bad choice.
