    Comments about SRAM PC971 9-Speed Chain:

    SRAM chains always use the PowerLink chain connector. They work perfectly with Shimano gears. I recommend buying the Park Tool master link pliers and a stiff hook wire to hold your chain together while you connect it to your bike. You need a chain-breaker tool to shorten the chain if you don't have a wide range of gears. Buy a new chain every 1000 - 2000 miles to keep your expensive chain rings and rear cluster from wearing out prematurely.

      I've been using the SRAM chains for years. Change regularly and then don't need to get new chainrings and cogsets. The chains have worked great.

      Master Link makes installation very easy, have not any tight links, chain lasts 5-7 thousand miles. Master link removal is more difficult compared to installation but no special tools required.

        THis was an excellent value, fits Shimano cassette and crank just fine. A better value than Shimano Ultegra,

          I have just gotten back into cycling late last year and am restocking my tool box with the things I need such as spare tubes, inflation systems etc. for out on the road for just in case of a breakdown. I have always used shimano, but I got the SRAM at a great price,it was easy to install (thanks to the combo tool, also from Nashbar) and it shifts perfect and I am very happy with it.

            Perfect combination of light weight and low cost. I used it for a budget build on an old '86 Bridgestone.

                Comments about SRAM PC971 9-Speed Chain:

                I needed to replace a Shimano Chain that had a few thousand miles on it and decided to try this Sram. I have only used Shimano in the past and have been satisfied. The only downside to the Shimano chains is their link system which requires a chain breaker and new pin each disassembly.

                The Sram was easy to install using the master link. You still need a chain breaker to do the initial sizing. I plan on taking the chain off the bike to clean it using the quick link instead of cleaning it while still in the bike.

                I have put a few hundred miles on the chain with no problems. I can not attest to durability yet. I also replaced a 105 cassette with a Sram 970. Shfts are just as smooth and quiet.

                    I use this chain on my touring bike, hybrid, and road tandem. The master link is a far better solution than the more expensive competition's need for a new pin each time the chain is broken. Shifting is precise, and properly cleaning and lubing the chain has provided up to 9000 miles of service for me.
