    Experience with chains?

    Hi guys – I was wondering if you could share your experiences and/or make some recommendations regarding the types of chains you use.

    Thanks!

    All my bikes have 8spd & 7spd drivetrains and have had great performance and durability with SRAM PC 58 & 68 chains. They are fairly priced and just plain work. I even use one on my single speed as well.

    SRAM for 9-speed also ....

    PC-59 or 69 plus you get power link which makes removing chain for servicing MUCH easier

    IMHO: Hands down the best chain made in the past 15 years. They are a little pricey but I get around 50% more miles out of them than Shimano or Sachs/Sram chains.

    Wipperman might be a close second but I havent logged enough miles on them to comment on the durability.
