Did a little research to find out if this chain, Jamis's chain, a Shimano HG-73 to be precise, is a bushingless chain, or a bushing chain. Near as i can figure, it is a bushing chain.
You say, who cares? Well, it apparently matters how you earl them. Bushing chains need earl between the side plates, while bushingless don't. One is supposed to earl the center and it let is flow down around the rolley thingie on each link.
Looks like that chain needs a bit more cleaning, though.

I finished Pictures Of Hollis Woods (Patricia Reilly Giff) this morning, and finished Black Mirror (Nancy Werlin) this afternoon.
