Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality chain Works well on my hybrid. Quality chain, improved shifting. 12 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Хорошая цепь за свою цену. Хороший недорогой расходник для 7-8 скоростных трансмиссий. С начала сезона катаю по кругу три таких цепи. Проехал порядка 4000 км. Износ цепей по шаблону X-tools не достиг еще 0,75% На следующий сезон заказал себе еще 3 штуки. 25 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Great service; postage from UK to Oz took two weeks, about what I expected, arrived in good condition and exactly what was required 25 August 2014
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 Does what it says.... Great chain. Very strong and easy to fit. I would highly reccomend! 13 March 2014

Answer: 
Yes - The number (HG50) of performance class usually tells you whether the parts are compatible. With chains the important thing is amount of gears. The chain must support same amount of gears you have in cassette.

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