    You might have to physically measure the chainstay length,I'm struggling to find a geometry chart.

    Just buy a standard chain and then use YouTube or Google to tell you how to fit and adjust the length.

    Just Google "8-speed chain" and pick one that suits your budget.
    Have you got a chain tool for splitting the old chain and shortening and joining the new chain?
