New Chain Advice
« on: June 25, 2007, 08:10:24 AM »
Due to my own failure, I need to pick up a new chain.  The bike is only a few months old, so I don't need new rings or cassette.  I am looking for a recommendation for a smooth but durable chain.  I have LX up front and X9 in the back.  My bike is a '07 Reign 1.  Thanks for any help.

I like the Sram's. I believe the one I've been using is the pc991. ( I"m not 100% on the model #, but I think thats it) Make sure you get an extra power link to carry with you.

Thanks for the reply.  I picked up the 971, but I will need to get the extra link still.

Hard to beat this chain for $22.99 http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product/CH707B08-Shimano+Cn-7701+9Sp+Chain.aspx

I use it with the sram or wipperman power link and have zero problems with them.
