Your talking about the Wipperman Ti chain right? You can get them direct or from performance cycling, ugh.

I was asking if you were talking about the hollow pin chain. The Ti chain I'm thinking about, right now I'll fit a Ultra10 and see if that 15gm gets me below a threshold to make it worth spending the money.

Anybody know any online stores that have the new campy chain in stock? I've had one on backorder forever and all the stores (and ebay) I've tried are backordered!

I have heard nothing but problems for the wipperman stainless chains. They snap real easy .The TI chain is an ungodly price. I wonder when Sram will have a 10 speed version of the hollowpin PC 89R.

bobalou - I just got my campy ultra chains from Colo Cyclist late last week so they had them then anyway.

Thanks .. I didn't check them. I've ordered mine. Not messing with anything else, I got a solid 4K miles from my last Record chain, no sense changing a good thing.
