    Are KMC chains any good?

    I found some 7 and 9 speed KMC chains at about 1/3 the price of the avid chains i have been using (i miss the pc-59 at 12 bucks).

    I looked at the product reviews - they are mostly 5+ years old and generally negative.

    Anyone tried a KMC chain lately and have an opinion they care to share?

    Thanks

    I have two on order.
    Iíve been using KMC chains with their master link system for years with never a problem!
    They are inexpensive and seem to shift and wear better than any Shimano chains Iíve used.
    It might depend on your riding style and expectations!
    Keep in mind I am neither a component snob or an abuser of equipment.

    I like their 1speed (BMX) chains. No clue about their shifting ones...
