KMC X10SL 10-Speed Chain, Ti Gold
2 of there chains make 3 chains that would work on most flatland frames with litle or no wasted links.

One chain Retail is $55 x 2 = (110 / 3 =  $36.60)
If they only made them in halflinks!!

From what I've heard, halflink chains tend to stretch more then regular chains, so using a metal with such unusual properties, its probably best they use the standard links.
Nice find nonetheless.  :mellow:

be careful though, a local pro. rider tried the same, running mtb 3/32 ti. chain, broke his chain within a week. he weighs around 60-70kg, and is pretty smooth, minimal pedal tricks,  so...

all the best, keep us updated

This chain is not made out of titanium. It has a titanium nitrade coating

Exactly.  Dans used to sell a BMX version of this a few years ago, but stopped for some reason. I also bought one for my mother's road bike.  The BMX and road bike version are the identical except the BMX one has less links. I have one on my 2000 Robinson SST. Personally, I would never use it for flat, unless you are using larger sprockets and rear cogs/freewheels.    
being small has it's advantages... :mellow:

Satainless, Satanless, or Stainless? :P
Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

If it has holes, it would be holy, therefore the answer would be satanless.

If the chain contains little or no iron, it would be stainless.  I hope I have been of some assistance.  :beer:

Yep, Ares made an all ti chain, but I'm sure other companies may have done the same.

No and no. The "Ares" ti chain is made by YBN, and has a TiN (titanium nitride) coating. All-ti chains do not exist (too pricey).

^ ^ Oh I see. ^ ^

At $310 USD for a chain, I see why they are rare.  :P

Nothing wrong with the tanga at $20 - $25 USD.
