Strengths:    This chain seemed to work great, however, that was only on the roads. Shifted nice, etc.

Weaknesses:    Broke the first time I took it onto the trails. I can't knock it too much, it was pretty muddy. It looked like a clean break, maybe I jammed a rock between the sprocket and the chain causing a link to pop. But the sprocket looks good.

Bottom Line:   
I understand that a chain is a chain and that they all break, but I didn't expect it on my first trail ride with the bike. I suppose that it pays to put money into the things that keep you going. Thought of that on the walk out.

Strengths:    Powerlink is neat, and works well.

Weaknesses:    This chain had about 250 miles on it when it broke the first time. This is the only chain I have ever broken.

Bottom Line:   
I am 140 lbs. I keep the chain clean and oiled as best I can on the trails I ride. Generally I am not abusive with shifts and don't run the chain across opposite sprockets. I was expecting a little more life from this chain. My friend's chaintool saved my day. I am thankful I didn't get hurt when it broke, and am now shopping for a better chain ...... and a chaintool.
