anyone had especially good or woefully bad experiences with a 1/8th chain on a fixed? i'm thinking of buying the kmc k710, being one of the most important components on a fixed i was looking for some input.

I'm sure you'll be happy w/the 710 (specs below). My bike came w/the 410 (specs below) and it's OK so far, but I'm considering an upgrade given all the skidding & skipping going on. KMC's link is also below.
