    Anyone got any thoughts on chains, ie which one, how much to pay and so on…

    A chain has to have a powerlink IMO, currently use SRAM PC991 chains, about £25 – £30, and last quite a while.
    Also heard very good things about the KMC X9 SL which are about £50 but they are meant to last a long time so probably worth the extra £££…

    Cheers Fingerbike,

    yes powerlinks make it much easier, and I have heard KMC’s are a stubborn to say the least when it comes to splitting.

    I use cheapo ones. Deore HG53. Have seen no difference with the SRAM 991s I used to use except for the cosmetic. They are about a tenner and I buy power links separately.

    Cheers Jonb,

    I’m starting to form the opinion that Chains are chains, and not much to choose between. Suppose it depends on how much you can justify spending
