Modern chains or otherwise.

Only up to 9 speed can normally be reused though I think.

IIRC you can get reusable links in 10s (definitely) and 11s now.

Check out the KMC website.

Yep. :D
Used 10sp for donkey's years.
11sp reusable too though not personally going to increase from 10.

Dunno about 12sp but I bet they use 11sp chains.

There's a skip near here labeled General Waste.
Perhaps he lives in there.

I use an old rag to clean the brushes, though it's not a perfect solution.

I wonder if anyone makes a chain-cleaner cleaner :)
