          Comments about Shimano XTR M981 Chain:

          I picked up this chain in moving from an 8x3 drivetrain to a 10x2. I found this XTR chain to be very light, durable, and well constructed. It mounted up easily and has offered smooth shifting as promised. No issues so far, but it is a little higher priced - so hoping it lasts!
