OUCH!!!
Came on Bike

Just got the bike out for some spring riding. Did all the typical maint. took it for a ride down the driveway then started back up and POW!! everything went out from under me. After spending the evening reading reviews on all 9 speed brands I've come to the decision to buy a SRAM-971 (I like the SRAM master link) and put pavement tires on it. Time to rebuild the 8 speed GT for an off-road bike. Never had an 8 speed break!!!
P.S. unlike others, I wouldn't Recommend this for beginners. It hurts!

Nada

Weakness:

Powerlink snapped with less than 2 weeks of soft riding.

The Powerlink snapped, not the chain...but with very soft riding.Is this (crappy products..) how online stores save on bikes?I now have mixed views on SRAM chains now..

My overall experience with the 49 is "avoid it" get something better...

Strength:

Nada. Zilch. Zero.

Weakness:

Yes, this product is very weak.

I bought my M80 because it had a great component list for
the price - at least the stuff that I thought mattered.
Never considered the chain. Figured one was pretty much
like any other. Nope. This one really sucks. It broke
both of the only two times I went off road to do some
trail riding and hill climbing. It jumped of the chainrings many times before that. Never again.

Can we add a negative chili to the list?

Similar Products Used: Don't even know. Never had to think about it before.

Weakness:

The chain is very weak.

I busted this chain my 2nd time going offroad. I didn't hit anything or do anything overly strenuous, but it snapped in half. I would not recommend this chain.
