Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

My Red22 chain is worn and needs to be changed. Thinking of which chain is best. Using Red Etap 1x11.

Anyone know the real difference between Red11 and XX1 chain? Or should I go Dura-Ace?

I was told that Eagle 12s or xx1 or Shimano dura/xtr chains work great on 1x11 setup with wide-narrow in mud. I learned hard way thta kmc hates peanut butter mud ... dropped chain over four times on one lap even with wide narrow ring.

Did get a Sram XX1 chain. 5660km on it now and still going strong. Never ridden so far on a chain without wearing it out :)
