One inch pitch roller chain , from Diamond , here in the U.S.A. , was re-released just a couple of years ago .

I don't know if they did one great big batch , and now there's plenty of it in the "supply pipeline" , or if they are continuing to release more of it .

I know that some list members sell it , or have access to it .

Block chain is another story .

It is ancient , antique , and much more expensive .

Block chain was the original chain .

The rollers were developed later .

I don't think anyone has reproduced any block chain .

And if you have any block chain , save it for use on genuine 1890's safety bicycles .
