    Bought for a mountain bike to urban cruiser conversion. Works well with SRAM 9 speed drivetrain. The quick link does not lock has hard as my KMC chain on my mountain bike.

          Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Chain:

          These are exactly the same high-end chain that others sell for up to double the price, but under the Nashbar brand. Dead reliable stuff and just what you want out in the boonies. Buy a spare. I just did.

          As with anything else bicycle related, there's a right and wrong way to mount a chain. Read up on chain fitment. Get that very nice Park's pin press for your tool kit -- it's quite a sweet piece of gear. Included quick links make this a breeze to mount. Keep it clean and remember -- excessive lube just makes a dirty stripe on your ride and your leg.

          Exactly as advertised. Having just spent $40 on a chain at my local shop for my bike, I got this for my girlfriends bike and saved a lot. Had to remove a few links to make the length just right, but once it was on it worked perfectly and greatly improved shifting.

              Got this for my commuter bike and it's everything I need at a great price! Super easy install with the 'magic' link. Seems durable and runs super smooth, couldn't ask for more.

                  I took the chain off and threw it away after I had experimented with adding/subtracting links and inspected for tight links. I put the original chain back on and I plan to replace it with only a genuine Shimano chain.

                    This is a KMC chain. Not the best on the market. But, it is the chain you want for commuting, touring or everyday mountain biking. It will wear out in about a year if you are doing around 4000 miles a year and you keep it lubed. It's not that lightweight but it is a workhorse of a chain. The magic link is handy for installation and removal for cleaning. I have and will continue to buy these chains because of their toughness and low price.

                    Great price, I wasn't even expecting a master (quick connect) link. Chain is long enough for triple chainring mountain bike setup, even a few extra links. Chain feels solid, was whisper quiet and silky smooth on first ride. With a KMC master link it seems likely it is a KMC chain. I use a KMC x10sl on my road bike, it has been awesome for several years with no special care, so I am pretty high on this manufacturer.

                    Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Chain:

                    It's a KMC chain which is a good chain and a great value. Buy a chain pin tool like the Park and read the instructions. If confused find a friend or LBS for help. Some wish it had more lube or grease from factory. Wrong answer!!! They know what they are doing. Check manufactures web site. Grease attracts dirt, dirt is abrasive, abrasives wear metal, worn metal= expensive parts replacement. Use a light oil and apply to every pin and then use rag to spread evenly and remove excess oil. A light film is desireable. If you like mud wash your bike regularly with low pressure garden hose (never high pressure washes grease out of bearings), dry and reapply light oil. Everyonce in a while clean chain, cog, and rings more thoroughly. Use a brush and non flammable solvent/degreaser and/or remove and use a plastic mayo jar with mineral spirits (low vapors= low flammability) and shake with lid on tight. Gloves and splash proof googles make it a safer job. Remove and dry with rag and apply light oil. Frequency depends on riding style. Do this and you have many miles of reliable performance. If you replace a chain before stretch is bad you save expensive cogs and rings. Bad chains ruin cogs and rings which becomes expensive. If this helped you please check the useful block so others can see it.
