REcommend A Chain

My recent experience with a field conversion to single speed help me to realize that replacing the chain is something not to fear and I should be doing that maintenance myself.

I've always had the shop put an Ultegra chain on.

Can you guys recommend some good chains to use for gravel?

Having used Shimano, KMC, SRAM, Campagnolo, and Wipperman chains....buy what is on sale. The only difference is the packing medium (seeming fish oil, or grease, or lube, or grease respectively). Lifespan is the same. Can get SRAM PC1130 chains with a masterlink included for $20 off Amazon, Prime. PC1110 is even cheaper, but not usually Prime.
