Perfectly adequate chain

I run the SRAM 50-series chains on all my bikes, because it's half the price of the 90 series, and in the 10-speed version, less than 20 grams heavier. I love the powerlink/masterlink, and the ability to fix it trailside with incredible ease, but I also haven't broken one of these chains, yet. The powerlink makes it a lot less finicky than Shimano's chain pins, as well.
