      I'm a Commuter that puts in @2k back and forth to work, as well as ride in hill-climbing challenge's and charity rides throughout the year. Had a chain like this last season and loved it. Just need to keep it clean and lubed, and it will get you over 3000 miles.

        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.

              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.
