I had 3 quick links in this chain after only a couple MTB rides. I'm going with 3 stars instead of 0 because it was mostly due to a shifting problem I was having. I would normally blame myself for this because I definitely was asking the chain to do something irregular, but I also think it should have been able to take it. I read reviews on other sites and found that other riders have experienced similar breakage. I'd recommend the chain for road use if you really want to use it, but I don't think it's suited for use on a mountain bike where you are more likely to shift under load.

      Comments about Sram PC-991 Hollow Pin 9SP Chain 2011:

      I used to buy the cheap PC-951 all the time, but I splurged this time on the PC-991. The weight difference is negligible, but the PC-991 seems to have a more durable plating finish making it easier to clean.

      For the weight weenies:
      One segment of PC-951: 5.21 grams
      One segment of PC-991: 4.97 grams

        Swapped to Sram XO 9sp from XTR on my blur approx two years back. No issues ever with this set up, no chain suck, smooth shifting so good in fact that two years and a few hundred k's (approx 500k's- Sorry I'm an Aussie)of recreational racing later I'd forgotten how long chain and cassette had been on for, yes some stretch but no shifting issues or chain jump / suck ever over that time.

          Installs easily. Best Chain I've used. Easy to remove with the power link and makes cleaning much easier. For everyday riding I would recommend the 991 Chain without the hollow pins as the hollow pins just collect dirt. Shimano Chains shift better but don't last as long as this one and can't be removed for cleaning. KMC Chains shift noticeably slower than SRAM. Overall you can't go wrong with this chain. Just make sure your sprockets are not worn out and you'll have months of flawless performance.

            I have this on a 3 by 9 stumpjumper fsr. The chain works perfectly. When I compared the PC-991 to the old chain, there was a noticeable weight savings. Operation is smooth and it feels strong- mission accomplished.

            Weight is good for a solid chain

            I would not put this on a heavy use mtb, but works well for a light duty rally bike. Do not expect to do significant chain break repairs, it should be set up with the quick link and tossed when out of service life.

              This is the third chain of this model that I have owned on two different bikes. I am very happy with it durability and reliability even though it is an extremely light chain.
