Date Reviewed: May 10, 2002

Strengths:    Strong, The star-punched pins have not failed me. Michigan springs and winters can trash a drivetrain.
Like the master link.

Weaknesses:    Master link not reusable. At least in theory

Bottom Line:   
Has not let me down like Shimano (with same mileage and care). Use w/ Pro-link chain lube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

too strong!

Bottom Line:   
this chain is really really strong, too strong, because it does not flex and makes shifting a little trickey, and it wears away at your drive train.
great quality, but a little heavey
very overbuilt.
i use a 8 speed drive train, so im not sure how the 9 speed chain is.
