Mr Williams This was bought as a like for like replacement for my winter bike. The previous one has done 3 years (2,500 miles?) in some of the filthiest conditions you could imagine for a road bike. Shifting is crisp, it is quiet and I find KMC chains work well with both Shimano and Campag systems, and are better than either in terms of durability.
Panagiotis my last kmc chain reached the 0,75 mark so i got this to replace it and dare i say upgrade it... it is lighter than my other kmc, but if no one told me i wouldn't notice the difference, the drivetrain sounds smooth, the gears change effortless and so far i'm very happy ! got it together with the bbb nautilous and linkfix and replaced it myself, easy peasy ! quicklink included !
Mr McMillan The chain is precisely what I was looking for in the U.S. DC area. Was told that a high end chain was no longer available due to the 9 speed being out dated (old). This chain is light with it's hollow pins and cut out on each link. So glad KMC does not think the 9 speed is irrelevant.
Surveyorcam KMC chains are hard to beat. This one looks great on my bike and is nice and light.
Bashring I purchased one of these chains well over 3 years ago and it has covered endless miles of year round mud, water grit and grime, it still performs faultlessly, its never let me down and a clean has it looking like new. As expected after 1000's of muddy off road miles it is getting a little worn, I have stripped and rebuilt my bike and didn't hesitate to buy a new one for the rebuild. They are light but seriously tough and durable, highly recommended.
Matt Barnes I've had a number of KMC chains over the years and have always found them to be excellent. They're strong, well made and (for the weight weenie amongst us) one of the lightest chains available. I've used the likes of SRAM and Shimano in the past but found they would snap or wear easily but this isn't a problem I've encountered with KMC chains. Granted, they aren't the cheapest available but, like most purchases in life, you get what you pay for. In conclusion, they're pricey but reliability, strength, low weight and longevity are worth paying for.
Nick Smart This is a great chain at the best price, very light and reasonably durable, this is my third in the last five years. Works well with XT kit, the joining link is easy to use and never had one fail,recommended
Mr Levesley Very nice chain, seems incredibly quiet. Used everyday and no problems.
Mr Fowkes Very light and shiny and seems to work well. I am heavier than your average road bike rider and had concerns whether the chain would be strong enough. No issues so far
Mr harper fantastic delivery service on this item, only one day and on to the bike, at the lowest price too.
