    I have a Pearson Touche which doesn’t have a chain. What is the “standard” width chain it takes?
    3/32?

    Is it running fixed or single speed? If single speed its most likely 3/32, if its fixed it could be 3/32 or 1/8.

    Right at the bottom of the box labelled "features". Can't really see why they use half link though, there should be enough adjustment with track ends to use a normal chain.

    I had a Pearson Touche and that used an ordinary 1/8" chain.

    It could be either as they let you choose when the bike is built up.

    1/8th will work happily on 3/32nd rings / sprockets. 3/32nd won't work happily on 1/8th rings/sprockets. If in any doubt get 1/8th. Keep any spare links once fitted, plus a spare quick-link, in case you change to a larger sprocket.
