ok, after seraching the forum, and asking questions here and there, I am about to order some chains. I am a heavy rider (250lbs) and i prematurely destroyed my 60 dollar cassette last time because i waited to long to replace my chain (1,300 miles) I figure because chains are pretty cheap, until I loose considerably more weight, i will just replace my chain every 800 - 900 miles.
Now, based on everyones suggestions, i figure i will get the SRAM PC-59 9 Speed for my mountain bike...
For my road bike (giant tcr2 full ultegra) would i be better off spending 19.99 on the SRAM PC-69 9 Speed..
or would i be better off spending 5 bucks more for the SRAM PC-89R 9 Speed????
or the SRAM PC-99 9 Speed that costs the same as the SRAM PC-89R 9 Speed
or should i just stick with the SRAM PC-59 9 Speed for both bikes??????
Please explain why you would choose one over the other. It is very important that i have a good, solid understanding here, because to try and save on shipping, i plan to make a bulk order, and buy 3 chains for each bike!!! (total of 6 chains)
Perhaps the most important question... since i plan to replace them so often, does it even matter what SRAM I get????
Thank you for your help. I am sure there are plently of people out there besides me that will be interested in any infomation you can provide on this subject.
