Looking for cheap bike chains - 6/7/8 speed

5
Posted 8th Jul
I'm fixing up a few old bikes and all the chains are shot so I need to buy a few replacements. What are the cheapest current options (with stock) that you guys know about?

I've a couple of 6 speed, a 7 speed and an 8 speed so I'm happy to buy either 5/6 speed for the 6's or just multiple 6/7/8 compatible ones.

Thanks!

If the chains aren't bent just soak them in engine oil for a few days they will be good as new .

Thanks, but they're wrecked - super rusty and really badly worn.
I'm just writing to gloat at my huge stock of 50p wilkinsons chains I bought a couple years ago.

As for who sells cheap chains at retail, Amazon, Amazon warehouse and ebay really. You occasionally see offers on online bike stores so worth checking, some have quite low postage amounts for free shipping..

Thanks, but £13 (if I recall, their shipping is £2.99) isn't a cheap chain.
