Hi everyone.

Having a look at chains and dont quite know what to look for.

I have an 8 speed sram cassette and a kmc X8 chain.

I would like something a bit tougher and durable than your regular run of the mill chain, possibly even a gold one.

What I dont understand is why chains are sold as 8 or 9 or 10 speeds, is the distance between the links different or are the chains just longer?

Can someone enlighten me and maybe recommend me a good chain, would a shimano chain fit my sram groupset, im gessing it would.

Thanks folks.
