KMC 93 vs 73 differences??
#1
Besides one being half chrome plated and the other being full grey, can anyone let me know if there are any other differences between these two 9 speed chains? For example is the x93 version more durable?
To clarify, these are the models...

When I was on KMC's site I could not find the "x73" but I did find the x93.
Here is the link to the "x93" .... http://www.kmcchain.us/kmcproduct.asp?pid=4814&bsid=32&ssid=585 .
From looking at it seems to be a pretty nice chain. The x73 is probably an older product.?
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Yes the x93 is the best chain you can get. I've had mine on the bike for well over a year and it's not even 0.75% stretched!

Newer technology is the only thing I seen different over the years with KMC.

The 93 is "half" nitrided coating.
The 99 is fully nitrided coating.
So I would assume the 73 has no titanium nitride coating. ??

What all that adds up too I don't know, but the 73 costs less.
Ride hard or ride home alone!
