    2014 Fuel EX9 29er chain question

    Can someone with a EX9 29er tell me how many links their chain has? I went 2x10 on my EX8 29er and was going to remove any links if needed. I have the same gearing as the EX9.

    I also noticed I have a KMC chain. I thought you had to have a Shimano HG-X chain as stated on the crank? I may buy a chain.

    KMC manufactures chains for Shimano. Don't worry about that.

    KMC may manufacture Shimano chains but does it meet the specs of the HG-X chains?
