The thing most do is buy two cycle chains and make one the right lenght for a C5, get a desent quality chain and you wont have any problems.

I know it sounds stupid... But if your going to use a bicycle chain from a shop, pay attention to the width of the chain.  I haven't had chance to measure the chainrings on the C5 (I misplaced my digi callipers) but I have a feeling they'l be 1/8th inch which is single speed bicycle chain.  Don't quote me on that.  I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be able to come up with the measurement.

If you have any paperwork with your C5, I think I've seen the chain size and measurements in there somowhere, can have a look later for you if you like.

hope this helps.
