I think the PC 58 is just a nickel-plated version of the PC 48. It runs well, wears well, shifts very well with both the older notched-tooth Regina and Atom freewheels and the SunTour Winners when used with Nuovo and Super Record mechs, is cheap ($12-$17) and has that cool little master link. It gets my vote as the rider chain of choice for both standard and narrow 5-7 speeds. As a narrow chain, it has the added advantage of giving a tad more clearance when using Campy Record front derailleurs. Getting a fat chain like a Regina Oro to not rub in top gear under heavy cranking on a short chainstay bike with a 6-speed cluster and pre-CPSC Record crank can be extremely difficult, if not impossible on some bikes. With a narrow chain like a PC 58, it's usually a piece of cake.
