    do more expensive chains last longer?

    really? you wear out the rings that fast? my rings(historically, this is my first 1x setup) last as long as my cassette if i keep up with the chain replacements (the 12 speed has been running 400-500 miles on a chain so far). and that is correct chain 'stretch' is actually the pins wearing out...

    definitely bring your bike, there arent enough demos for everyone to do group rides on them, take em for a spin and return em, then join the group rides on your own faithful mount. maybe ill see you guys there, wave if you see me

    yea i have similar results running the sram chains on past bikes, the mountain bikes wear out a chain faster for obvious reasons, lubing them frequently helps, but at the cost of a cheap chain you have to decide how much effort that extra life is actually worth. the eagle chains definitely seem...
