Rated 4 out of 5 by Работает Переключение на однотипной группе (7ХХ) отличное. На старших группах не пробовал (в основном 94 и 95 пользуюсь). Только не любит долго в сырости жить - цвет меняет на рыжий, но не тотально. 27 August 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fine chain! I always use Shimano chains because I have never had a problem with them. I have read reviews which state they must be carefully joined but I join it with a sram power link and never had an issue. 09 June 2014

Sram groupset

Can I use this chain on my Sram X5 9 speed group set?
Is this chain the best option for this group set at about this price?
Considered a Sram chain but can the chain length still be adjusted by using a pin removal tool?
Bit confused HELP!

Answer: 
SRAM and Shimano 9 speed chains and chainrings are cross-compatible, so you are free to use either brand of chain as you prefer. The SRAM chains use the Powerlink connection for tool-free removal and fitting, while Shimano still use the more traditional connecting pins. Either brand of chain can be shortened by using a chain breaker tool as normal.

Answer: 
Yes HG73 can be used with any components of the 9-speed systems. Chain length can be shortened by means of pin removal tool. I use a chain lock for KMC.

Answers

Answer: 
Chain length depends on the total gear capacity of your setup. 112 or 114 links is average for a triple ring system and 11-34 cassette.

It is easiest to size the chain without threading it through the derailleur.
1) Remove the old chain.
2) Shift the front derailleur over the largest chainring, and the rear derailleur on the smallest cog.
3) Thread the new chain through the front derailleur. It is not necessary to thread the chain through the rear derailleur at this point. Simply wrap the chain around the largest front chainring and around the largest rear cog.
4) Pull the chain tight, and note the closest rivet where the two could be joined. Keep in mind a chain can only be joined by mating inner and outer plates.
5) From the closet rivet, lengthen the chain by counting over an additional two rivets (two links), which is a distance of one-inch. Cut the chain at this point.
6) Remove the chain from the bike and thread it through both derailleurs and join the ends.
