Jeff,

The SRAM PC48 chains are very similar to Sedis Sport chains. SRAM is the successor to Sedis. These chains work very well. They're rated for 6-7-8 teeth but I've had no problems on 5T. Only aesthetic problem is they are gray rather than the black color of the original Sedis chains.

They apparently have been discontinued??? but still available on the web. They've been replaced with the PC830/PC850 chains with a wide outer link like Shimano chains.

Rivoli works OK too.
