      rejuvenating/converting a 1996 Nishiki Pueblo into a commuter/hybrid and needed a new 7 speed chain, this fit the bill and is working perfectly.

        Comments about Shimano HG40 8-SPEED Chain:

        I was introduced to this chain on a new bike purchase. This chain runs smooth. I am fairly experienced with bike maintenance and so I lubed my chain after every wet ride (there weren't many) and then monthly. I have had this chain for 6 months, and it is a constant battle to fight off rust. If you look at the stock pictures above, you can already even see the beginnings of rust. DO NOT BUY (unless only using for 5 months).

          Comments about Shimano HG40 8-SPEED Chain:

          Purchased this chain for a 2007 Iron Horse mountain bike with a million miles on it. While most will agree that Shimano HG chains are a bit of a pain to install, they are quiet and hold up well without constant maintenance. Also, after you've replaced one or two, you get the hang of it.

          This chain shifts well and is quiet. Pedalling is now a pleasure and I am no longer skipping teeth as I did on the old, worn-out chain.

          Very satisfied.
