Simple question are they the same ?

I've own a Langster and my son came home today after snapping his BMX chain, so if i buy a couple of suitable chains would they work on both bikes ?

Any help would be appreciated :)

  • IRC from post I`ve read on here a BMX chain would be fine. I maybe wrong however.......
  • BMX chains are almost all 1/8" so that should work no problem.
    There are racing BMX chains at 3/32", but not so common.

    Indeed, most BMX chains are 1/8" like track chains are are often super-strong so make a good choice for fixed gear use. You can also get coloured ones too. I used a BMX half-link chain on my daily rider.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    BMX chains work a treat on track bikes but can be a bit too short if you use a big chain ring... i use a 43x13 or 47x14 and have chain to spare...
