      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.

                Great replacement for oem chain. Doesn't cost an arm or leg to keep a vintage bike going.

                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.

                Comments about KMC Z-72 8 Speed 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.
