Will this work with an 11T Geisha driver?

No the teeth on the 11T KHE drivers are 1/8 thick therefore non compatible with a 3/32 wide chain.

Anyone have trouble with these chain snapping  :P


My 1st flatland was a tanga (came on equilibrium) and it broke after 3/4 months so i got a new one a it snapped as i was crossing the road in front of an on comin car  >:(


So i joined the two up and it only lasted a couple of months so now i won't go near them


After that a bought a halflink and i've had that over a year and i snapped it last friday (right outside the front gates of the local high school ;D ) on the way to get my kiddies from primary school

Hi,
you should ask the shop about compatibility! The original 11T Geisha drivers were 1/8", but I have bought a 11T driver directly from KHE about two years ago and this one is 3/32" thus works with such a chain. So you can buy them, but you should clarify it...
I am riding 3/32" chains since ever. I have not snapped one of them. As long as you don't run it super tight, they should hold up.
You can also grind down 1 mm of the teeth of the 1/8" driver. I did this with older freecoaster sprocket and had no problems beside rust  :) .

I rode one of these chains from 2007-2012. I snapped it once right before my final runs at texas toast then again on the same link later that night so technically it was just once.

One impressive chain.
