Pros: Lightweight

Cons: Broke a link on a steep uphill. Thankfully I carry a master link and chain tool.

Recommendation: Only have two rides on the chain but after first mishap it seems fine. Broken link might be my own fault not setting the pin all the way in? Seems fine and shifts well.

Pros: Best shifting chain I've ever ridden. Also very strong.

Cons: I managed to break it.

Recommendation: Great blingy chain. I replaced it with a PC-971 because they're so much cheaper and I break chains too often.

Pros: Very strong and durable chain.

Cons: price,I like to keep a spare around the price of two of these is a little hard to swallow.

Recommendation: This chain is strong,I am a big clydesdale at 300 plbs. and broke all my chains until I bought this chain,also this chain is just plain nice and feels like a gold neclace on my bike....
