Chain & Sprockets, where to...

...purchase?

After less than 11,000 miles my chain is showing signs of link kinking. I want to purchase a new chain with 16 /42 sprockets (99% road). Where is the best buy? Someone mentioned eBay a few months ago and I could not find them the other evening.

Dirtparts.com is the guy that sells them on e-bay, and that is where I got mine.

Thanks guys. What is the difference between an O ring chain (stock) and an X ring chain (as advertised by 'dirtparts')?

The profile of the little O Rings (or X). An "X" Shape can hold more oil between the plates, thus better!
