Does anyone have any input as to what the best 530 chain in for the money? My chain is 126 link so I figured it is best to buy a 130 length and to shorten it. Chain is for my xs project. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

I bought my 530 chain from CycleX, and that shit is super strong. In fact it was so strong, it was quite a struggle to cut some links out of it. But its only 120 links....maybe you can call and work something out? Ken is pretty accommodating i think

x2 for cyclex. I've NEVER had problems dealing with those guys and shit shows up in a timely manner.

The smoothest way of dealing with them for me has been through their ebay store. They hardly ever respond to emails except with a stock "Ken's really busy and doesn't like to type but feel free to call us." When you do you often have to call back an hour later or more since he's on the phone with other guys.

I only see the 120 link 530 on the website. What is the ebay store name? I tried finding it without any luck.

I bought one of these for my project. I haven't ran it but it's cheap, and the guys that sell it recommended it higher than the more expensive chains. Also try LowBrow Customs. They have some long ass chains too and they are cool as fuck to deal with
