Decent chain
So far so good. I'm using this on a pseudo single speed (internally geared rear hub) so the chain doesn't see any shifting. But so far it is holding together through some hard stand-up pedaling.

Good chain
This chain is the original that came on my Giant Cypres. It went 3700 miles and was showing 1/8" wear over 12" length.

Very durable with no problems. About 1200 of those miles were on crushed limestone trail.

I will change it sooner next time and will buy the KMC Z-72 again. It's very economical and durable! Comes with a master quick link too.

My chain of choice.
This is my chain of choice for my vintage steel, seven speed road bikes. Price is right, durable, perfect width. Shop around, the price varies among retailers but is usually in the ten dollar range. A very good value, boy howdy.

PROS: Easy to Use, Durable, Great Price, Compatible

Good Basic Chain for Older Bikes
Good chain for the older bikes. Master link makes connection easy. I have used KMC chains in the past and have found them to be reliable.

Great Price!
I live in a University town so as students leave I buy their bikes at a discount and sell them to incoming students for a profit. Many times a new chain is needed to get them up to speed. My experience is that the KMC chains are easy to install at a great price. As many times these chains are what came with the bike anyway the buyer is getting a new deal. Seems like the chains are a good product as some of the bikes I have flipped were ridden 2-3 thousnad miles over the last couple of years. Yeah the chain needs to be replaced but the sram chain i use on my bike lasts 1200-1400 miles on average and I weigh 165 lbs.

A quick and easy upgrade.
This chain was purchased to replace another KMC chain that I could not identify on my 2011 Redline Monocog 29'r. It also marks my first experience with any sort of master-link... and I couldn't be happier with it.

Cutting the chain proved quick and easy with a Park Tool CT-5, and installation took a matter of seconds, even without specialized tools.

For my personal tastes, the factory lube left something to be desired, as it attracted grit easily and kept it there. Fortunately, removal was just as easy as the install (again, without any tools) and cleaning took far less effort than that I had been accustomed to with my last chain, and my inability to remove it from the frame.

Good solid product
This chain was easy to install. It is smooth and shifts very well. Had a similar KMC chain as original equipment and it gave me 3000 trouble free miles. Great chain for the price.
