    I needed a new chain so I upgraded my chain and cassette to the ulterga 6700. I now have a full ultegra groupo. I felt the different in weight on my first ride. It changes gear even better and seems to spin much easier. I got 3 PR's on strava on the first ride.

    I've worked with a lot of chains in the past, from SRAM, Shimano, and Campy, and this one gave me nothing but fits. It's possible that it was my error, but, like I said, I've installed, sized, tuned, reinstalled, and reconditioned a lot of chains in the past. The master pin that's used to close the chain didn't work correctly. I read and re-read the instructions, and couldn't get it to seat in the link properly, and it was causing the links to bind up. When I attempted to remove those links, and replace them with the links I removed when sizing it, I couldn't get the link pins to seat properly in them either. I decided to take it for a test ride anyway, to see if that would get everything to set up. I got about 30 feet before the links broke at the joint. So, if you're a Shimano Junky, and feel good about your ability to install it, this is probably a good chain for the money. For my money, time, and well-being, though, I'm sticking with SRAM.

      Works well. I like that it doesn't have a master link. You can push out any of the pins with a chain breaker tool.

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6701 10 Speed Chain:

          A classic Shimano chain with the hyperglide pin. Doesn't use a masterlink, but for the road bike this cannot be beat. Very strong, good shifting on either Shimano or SRAM. Put it on and go. Not much else to say.

            Works great. I have bought 3 or 4 of these and replace the chain on my bikes after about 1500 miles.

                Upgraded to this chain and this was the first time I have used a chain that is specific to the direction. I can't believe how much smoother and quicker it shifts over my orginal chain.

                      Ultegra chains are quite a bit cheaper than the SRAM equivalents. They shift a little better, but wear out much faster. I still prefer the balance of an Ultegra chain.

                        Quieter and smoother than my Sram chain. I use a KMC Missing link for easy off the bike cleaning and lube.

                        Note: the chain is unidirectional and will have issues is installed the wrong way.
