OMG is there a chain out there that will not rust. I live in South Padre Island, TX and the salt water is killing me. Any suggestions? The chain wax and oil doesnt protect from this salt water

The valley, holy crap.I grew up in harligen Tx!Have'nt visited in 20 years though.How bad is it now?Oh yeah! Get a gold chain, DID or RK are good brands.The gold is actually a cad plating that helps with oxidation & other enviromental things.Try not to use a new chain on used sprockets though.
