Rated 5 out of 5 by kiaido Snappy shifting compared to non-shimano brands..of course
While i always strive to save money by using non-shimano brand chains such as the KMC replacement chains i have noticed that when i do go back to using shimano's that the chains somehow last longer and shift better. Of course this is due to shimano working better with shimano's own built components.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Camppis Works nicely
I bought this chain for second time and im pleased to it. If you want to take chains off sometimes, i think you should go for some quick lock ones. Othewise these are just normal and worked without problems for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by runsomemore Worked perfectly fine for me
Got this chain on my commuter bike, and feels it hits the sweet-spot between quality and price. Some surface rust after a good soaking, but after a good cleaning and lubrication it seems to be back to "normal".

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Cheap, different but good
Bought two of these (they're dirt cheap right now, so why not). After fitting the first on my bike I decided it should be a bit shorter, so I removed a pin, took out a few links and put the removed pin back in. This works on most chains without a problem, no? The chain broke after a few km. Took out the busted link, same thing happened. I got fed up, disposed of the chain, fitted the second chain and it's been going strong for hundreds of km now.
I hate to say it, but I think Ziggurat is right. This is a good deal, as long as you do everything right. Use the pin that comes with the chain, make the length of the chain as you want it, never ever remove it and you'll be happy until it is worn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous rusts easily...
works well enough,but after a couple months of riding in the british summer (rain, rain and more rain!) it is constantly rusty, spend a few more quid on the hg93, which is zinc coated

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent service and price correct spare part.
Absolutely super service, ordered at 11am, delivered next day at 9am free of charge! Best price on the net as well.
Chain is a genuine Shimano spare part, comes with one link pin, easy to shorten and fit provided you have a proper pin extractor/inserting tool, this is essential. I'm a very satisfied customer. Thank you Chain Reaction Cycles.

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! Regards Mark

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.
