Hi

I built up a Scott Foil from Westbrook but for some reason recently I was thinking that I used a 10speed chain (the one supplied). Don't know what made me think of it, anyway I can tell by looking at the chain is it's 10 or 11 speed?

    Probably not. An 11 speed chain is 5.5mm wide (over the outer plates) and a 10 speed either 5.88mm or 6.2mm. You might get away with using a steel rule to check it :)

    Some brands actually stamp a 9 or 10 or 11 on the links.
