a titanium chain? forgive my cycnicism but how would they work - my mind tellms that wear would be fast. and i wonder if the simplex product and design group had toyed with ideas of a 'delrin' chain that probably never made it to market.

but i could be wrong and titanium could be a suitable material for a chain. i do find the idea fascinating, tho. anyone ever use one?
