    Comments about KMC Z-72 8 Speed Chain:

    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.

      Comments about KMC Z-72 8 Speed Chain:

      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.

        Comments about KMC Z-72 8 Speed 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.

          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.

          Comments about KMC Z-72 8 Speed Chain:

          This is a direct replacement to the stock chain that came with the bike. I was able to coax 3,000 miles out of it before replacing. Granted I don't do any sort of technical riding - strictly road commuting. Very happy with performance. Note: The installation instructions are vague - and I am a novice when working on the bike - do research before installing and it will be straight forward.
          Another note - don't let your chain go 3,000 miles - my next purchase will be a cassette :)

              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.
