Chain really lasts and shifts great. Easy install with a great master link. To engage the master link install it in the chain, roll it around to the top side hold the rear brake, push hard on the pedal. snap.
Fist I'd like to give Tree Fort Bikes props for great service, good pricing, fantastic order processing, and fast shipping.
As far as the chain, I made the switch to KMC a few years ago and have not looked back. The Missing link is great, I clean my chains every ride for the MNT and every 4 ride for the road nad have not had to replace the link yet(2-3)years. The chains are light, strong, and shift awesome( at least with Shimano)
This is my second chain and the first lasted 3 times longer than my last Dura-Ace chain. It shifts like a dream and is light weight. The master link is a little tricky to engage - it works easy if you have an external cir clip pliers to set it with. All in all it's a great chain and my go to.
I love this chain. Works great for SRAM. A little noisy at first, but seems to quiet down in time. Installation is a cinch, just make sure if you're shortening the chain to remove the right part of the link, so it's still compatible with the masterlink. I love the masterlink on this chain, it makes it really easy to remove, clean well, and put back on the bike. Seems to last longer than SRAM chains, and weighs less.
I chose this over the SRAM PC1071 based on weight and price. So far it has worked flawlessly, my shifting feels more precise and quieter. But to be fair, the chain is paired with a new cassette (SRAM PG1070) and new crankset (SRAM Red 2011) - so I don't know if I can attribute all the change to the chain from my old setup. I would definitely buy again - the master link is great.
