Which chain have you found to work best on 10 speed drive trains?
Which chain is the best value?

If shimano or sram-shimano 105 level 10s chain. For Campagnolo, a Veloce or Centaur 10s chain. ideally each with a Wipperman snaplink. NO reason to use expensive chains or cogsets. More expensive, wear out more quickly(titanium cogs), do not perform any better. Least expensive compatible cogset and chain is best.
