Heavy and stretchy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Besides being ridiculously cheap, there are not many other good attributes about this chain. I bought 3 or 4 on a killer sale on chainlove. I think these are made of lead because they are extremely heavy and stretch like none other. If you get 200 miles on this chain your lucky. I'm not a big guy (150 lbs) but I do ride hard. I threw a new chain on my bike before a 100 mile race. By the time I finished the race, the chain was starting to pop and skip because it had stretched so much. After the race, I kept with the chain, and just retensioned it. At least one a week, almost before each ride, I would have to retension the chain. After about a total of 200 miles, I had almost maxed out my sliders. Spend a little more money and buy a higher quality 8 speed chain. I will be MUCH lighter and stretch at a much more manageable rate.

It's pretty; You get what you pay for

I wanted some coordinating blingy bits for my SS, and this fit the bill. I had to adjust the chain tension quite often through the break-in period, and even after being well worn in it's not the smoothest thing ever, but it still gets the job done in style, and at $4 how can you complain?

So far so good

    I'm in process of converting a '93 Giant Iguana to a single speed beater/city cruiser and slapped this chain on the other day. Like another reviewer said, it was easy to install. I've only given it a quick spin around the neighborhood but so far it seems solid.

    I'm rebuilding a Trek 3900. How do I know...

    I'm rebuilding a Trek 3900. How do I know if this chain link will be long enough for the bike that I have? Do I just measure my current chain or can I tell by the number of speed? I've changed everything from the tires, the brakes, grips/saddle, etc...but not sure about this one. Also, do I break the current chain to remove it? Any online blog/site/YouTube video I can check out? Thanks so much for the help!!!

    Yes, the easiest way to make sure the new chain will be long enough is to count the links on your old chain and buy one with at least as many. This one has 102. You will need a chain tool to remove excess links and/or remove your old chain if it doesn't have a "master" link. I'm sure googling "how to change a bike chain" will get you the videos you want.



    More importantly, note this is a SINGLE-SPEED specific chain, as indicated in the title and description. The bike model and "number of speed" you mention implies that you have gears and derailleurs, with which this chain will not play well. Also, if your old chain is truly worn out you probably need to replace your cassette as well, since they tend to wear together. Unless you're ready for a crash course in drivetrain maintenance with some tool purchases, you might just want to take it to your local bike shop.

    Why does the Green look more like a turqoise...

    Why does the Green look more like a turqoise or is the color just off? Will there be other colors offered such as brown or cutter neon green?

    Is this 3/32 or 1/8? The tech specs say 1/8 but in the drop down menu to select color it says 3/32. I can only do 1/8 on my set up, so it matters.
