Used it on a single speed. At ten bucks, it's the best deal out there.
For the weight weenies: it's actually one of the lightest 8sp chains I found, especially at this price.
I've used SRAM and Shimano before - this was just as good, and a bit quieter.
Quick link was super easy to install.
FYI - the OEM lubricant is petroleum-based, and smells a LOT. Might want to wear gloves when installing.
It's cheap and it works pretty well, about as well as the cheap Shimano chains, but for much less. The QuickLink works as advertised and makes it a breeze to pop the chain on or off for cleaning or other maintenance.
I use this on my Big Dummy, so it sees pretty heavy use, all sorts of conditions and get cleaned sometimes (it's a car replacement, not a mollycoddled race bike). It stands up to the abuse well and the price is right.

Put this on my winter bike for commuting 8 miles each way in cold, snowy, and salty Chicago. It lasted one season, and will probably last at least half of this season (with an increased commute of 15 miles each way).
Everything you use daily through the winter gets ruined, and this chain has been holding up better than others ive had.
Summed up: Great for the price, holds up through bad winters of daily commuting.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Good inexpensive chain for older MTB or commuters. Good looking bright nickel finish for a touch of flash to your commuter. Master link is easy to install, but note that the chain as it comes in with 116 links may be too long for many bikes and you'll still need a chain tool to remove a few links.

I put this on a vintage Schwinn Continental 10 speed (no ramps/pins)....works great....the flared outer plates help with the shifting. The original 5 speed chains had protruding pins to help with shifting but these are hard to find in a decent quality.
