    use it instead of Dura-ace , you'll change it
    sooner and keep the drive fresher. Chain is cheaper than gears !

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain:

    These seems to be a good durable chain, especially for the money here at Nashbar. I have a mountain bike and like the KVM chains. They have a "missing link" which can be re-used versus the proprietary pins for Shimano.

            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.
