          The shimano specs say this is not suitable for a triple. I ordred anyway. It does work, but it does not always shift down the lowest ring. The prior chain did, so I assume it's truly the chain. I'd buy only for doubles.

            I replace my chain once a year to avoid excess wear. I average at least 5,000 miles or more. I've been using this chain exclusively in my Madone with no failures to date. A wear usually displays the reaching of stretch limits at this time.

                    I'm relatively new to road cycling and this was my first chain replacement. Sorry, but i have no other point of reference to use for compsrison.

                    It's a back up chain at this point. When the current chain wears out, I will replace it!!

                          Chain engineering has changed a bit since I last replaced one. This chain has a right and wrong way to install it. More importantly, be sure you measure chain length carefully before using the single connecting pin! You only get one chance. In my case I had to purchase some additional pins because I did not realize it was a one shot deal and I did not measure carefully the first time.

                          I do a lot of miles for exercise, charity rides, get togethers etc. Weight is not a concern. I just want a chain that will outlast the next guy. I wet oil after every ride and wipe down. I degrease when I start to feel too much grit build up (about every 250 miles). I do it on the bike and rinse with water then dry with a blower before re-oiling. The Shimano permanent pin link makes it not friendly to remove. This chain just started to fail the 0.5mm check on a Parker gauge at 2475 miles. (I have to force the gauge in a bit). So, I will give it another couple of hundred miles then replace. If I get around 2700 miles on a chain??? Yeah.. I cant complain about that. I will be replacing it with a 105 chain just to compare because they are $10 cheaper. In comparison to the KMC chain that came with this bike, it made it to about 1800 miles.

                          The chain works really well with ultegra components but you have to change it eyery 2000 to 2400 miles or otherwise you will wipe out you front chain rings in about 7000 miles.It happened to me once.
