Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! Works as a great pair with HG51 cassettes. Cheap and strong chain 26 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HG-50 chain Great chain at a good price bought this chain to go with a new HG-41 cassette for my Trek 7.2 hybrid.No problems fitting it and in runs smooth and changes nicely. 24 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Самая обычная цепь Эта цепь мне напомнила цепь с велосипеда Аист, времён СССР :) Такая же чёрная и нет соединительного пина. О последнем этом лучше конечно написать, в описании товара на сайте т.к. не все об этом знают, вот и я не знал, хорошо у меня замочки есть от KMC. Для другого велосипеда, я покупал цепь на 9 скоростей и там был пин в комплекте. 06 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Нормальная цепь Ходит до растяжения 0,5 ~1100км. Для сравнения HG70 ходит ~1500км. Сравниваем цены и делаем выбор. 10 April 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by good value good value chain, although it's not the prettiest, it does the job. 23 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good chain for a good price For my Shimano 8 speed bikes, I have found that Shimano chains shift best. The HG40 is cheaper, but according to the description, the HG50 should be stronger/more wear resistant. The HG70 is more expensive, but there don't appear to be any advantages other than it is prettier. 03 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by don't use WD-40 Not sure what someone reading this review my be looking for, but I used this chain for about 2500 miles before I revamped my bike to 9speed spec. It was fine except that we went through a period of constant snapping. That was it's way of saying "clean me, idiot". Cleaned it and it forgave me, for a while. That was when I learned why not to use WD-40 on a bike chain. It picks up debris and jams up the chain, causing breakages. It washes off easily in rain. It strips off anything that was on the chain that stood a chance of protecting it. That 'sticky, messy crap' that your chain comes coated with is actually a long-lasting and effective lubricant and is what you should be aiming to apply after you have cleaned your chain. At a push a 'dry film' or PTFE spray will do without being sticky, but will not lubricate as well. Oh, and 'anonymous' from Ireland: if you clean and lubricate any chain PROPERLY, it will NOT rust. 10 April 2012

This is the chain I use with my 8-speed Sora cassettes, and is the best shifting chain on these cassettes that I have tried.

Answer: 
Yes, this chain would need to be shortened to fit your drivetrain; which is simply done using a chain tool / rivet extractor.
