Strongest 10 Speed Chain for Use with Bafang BBS02

Post by joshseitz » Apr 05 2015 11:51pm

I just replaced my 9 speed drivetrain with Shimano Zee (shadow+) derailleur, shifter, SLX 10 sp cassette and KMC X10.93 chain. The whole setup rides and shifts like a dream (Shadow+ is the real deal), though after only about 40 miles I broke my first chain (300+ miles on Sram 9 speed chain with no issues).

Does anyone have any recommendations for 10-speed chains up to this kind of application? I've seen 8- and 9-speed E-bike specific chains available, but nothing in 10 speed.

Thanks!

I've had good luck with SRAM PC1051.

KMC X10e chains are made for mid drives. I don't know if it's just markting talk though.,

Could be just bad luck.
Even without electric power chains sometimes just break, even new ones.
Just fix the one you have and give it another go.

Wippermann makes a really nice heavy duty chain that will work w/the bbso1 or 2 its called the "Connex".

Thanks guys. I may give the KMC or Wipperman a try, though they're very hard to find in the States.
