    Best 8 Speed Chain

    Is Shimano IG70 the best 8sp chain?
    What about sram, kmc, or wippermann?

    SRAM PC-68 which I use on all my bikes. SRAM has replaced the PC-68 with the PC-890 but I haven't use those yet as I have a stash of PC-68s.

    +1 on the Sram PC-890
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    I only have 8-speed bikes and only use Sram (at one time was Sachs). I usually purchase the lowest priced one as I change my chains out every 4 months or so. I once used Shimano, but after several broken chains I changed.
