    500ish miles, I'd say. Didn't crash, heard it start to give out and was able to back off a little before it snapped.

    I was biking through this on the same ride a few hours prior (attached)....which generally makes chains look uncared for. I've cleaned/oiled it regularly between rides though.

    Anyways, I'd figure lack of maintenance would cause the pins to pop off the plates as that connection wears away with excess grit, not the plates to just shear in half. I've broken plenty of chains and never had this happen before.

    I stopped using SRAM chains a few years back after a run of breaking several.

    At first I thought it was because of the the awesome power of my legs...

    It definitely wasn't neglect. My chainlines are straight, my tensions are correct, and my chains get maintained and usually last for ages.

    Alas I came to the conclusion that it wasn't my awesomeness but poor QC on the SRAM chains (some were OK) and I switched to KMC and never have had a problem since (or my legs have become less awesome, you decide ).
