Needed a strong replacement for front drive chain on tandem. Previous chains used tended to stretch quickly. The links on this chain look to be strong and also like the chrome/nickel finish. Had to purchase two and link together for extra length of front tandem chain.The linking pins are VERY hard to remove, broke two screw type chain tools and my old VAR plier tool would not budge the pin. I finally had to use a punch and hammer to remove the pin and ended up using 2 quick connects so I would not have to remove a 2nd pin.
So far I have had no stretch of this chain and plan on ordering a couple more to have as spares.

I installed this chain on a project bike. It seems pretty durable out of the box, but the factory lube isn't particularly tacky so I'm no sure how it will hold up. I don't like the "MissingLink" thing, it's easy to install but seems a little flimsy and does not lock together tightly like a SRAM chain. In a nutshell the price is great but it's OEM quality at best and not an upgrade. I would recommend it to a friend for what it is, but don't expect a gem here.

        This chain is rock solid. I have two of these for different gear ratios on my singlespeed mtb, and have never had a single issue with either of them.

          Comments about KMC X8.93 Chain:

          Good products for 6/7/8 speed bikes are hard to come by anymore, this is the best chain I have found that is currently available. Smooth shifting, great wear. I have had other manufactures chains break after short duration that were twice the price, and these have never broken on me. Only death nail has been due to stretch.
