Im gonna upgrade my front derailleur to a Shimano Deore from a Shimano C051. I have to punch the chain cause it has no master link. Its also a crappy KMC Z -30 chain. I was wonderin if anyone had any suggestions on which chain would be best for my application.
Current drive train listed below.

DRIVETRAIN:
SHIFTERS: Shimano EF29
FRONT DERAILLEUR: Shimano C051 (Replacing w/ Deore)
REAR DERAILLEUR: Shimano Acera
CRANKSET: SR XCC100 48/38/28
CASSETTE: Shimano HG40 14-34, 7 speed
CHAIN: KMC Z-30 (replacing w/ ?)
PEDALS: Nylon platform

Thanks,
Sinkhole

A couple of things

SRAM PC 48 chains work well and are cheaper than PC 68. You can buy a SRAM 8 speed powerlink to put your chain back together or use your chain tool to reassemble it. if it is been on your bike a while and is getting stretched replace it before it wears out your cassette and chainrings. See Mike T's FAQ for some good info. anhttp://www.execulink.com/~dtierney/wmc/faq.htm
