Maybe I was doing it incorrectly, but this chain took forever to install. Could be a chain tool issue more than anything.

Once I got it on, I've had no troubles. Shifts smoothly, lubricates easily, and appears to be tough. Not as light as an XTR, but hey, I don't race and wouldn't drop that much on a chain. Definitely worth the money.

I've been running this chain with a KMC missing link with no problems. Helps a little when you need to remove the chain.

Originally started using this chain after a run of bad luck with the SRAM chains (still won't buy them!). It has proved to be reliable through a myriad of conditions and uses. Unfortunately, some have been breaking or spreading apart at the pins, causing poor shifting and noise before failing. Not sure if this is just a temporary run of faulty chains but you might want to spring for the higher priced Whipperman instead. Still, I would buy it if you don't race.

    Great chain, never break them. However Shimano should include and extra pin or two with the chain. But really wish they used a quick link to make it an easier install.
