I'm looking for a set for my bike....

I see wunderlich has a set but they are you typical auto type steel chains...
They prolly weigh, but they cost like 500 bux a set...

I see Michelin makes a set made of nylon, but I'd have to figure out what size wouls fit my bike..I bet If I ask them they'ed say that the chains aren't recomended for motorbikes...




I saw them on a few bike in you tube videos



Look at :47 secs in

I'm still waiting to try them before I decide if I put bolts on them.


Hopefully I'll get to try them sometime this week.

If I had the bikes I'd probably ride a little, but they "winter" at my buddy's house so my truck can go in the garage. I'll bring them home in March.
