I mentioned in one of my other posts about making a chain, not sure anyone else has done it, but i figured i'd post the one i did on here and let you guys play with it some. Let me know what you think

That's pretty cool, but bicycle chains are built differently.

Here's one I found in the 3d warehouse. http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=20c84a1ee82b6bdfe1f94972f50a99b1&prevstart=0

This one's better, http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=c25e3f5c23dc4b2dfd2ea1959542a7&prevstart=0

This is even better, but wouldn't work on a derailleure bike. The pins protrude too far. http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=2e7366029befc5537e44e3c724db889f&prevstart=24

There's still room for improvement on these though. Chains for derailleur geared bicycles are very sophisticated.

lol, now that you mention it, i dont know what i was thinking when i first built this...
It took me a while to recognize where i got this shape from, and then it clicked that is was based off the chain links that LEGOs use....
