    What's weird is varminter made a completely pointless post - - seeking validation for buying a chain? Puuuuleeease. And then you and 10W go and validate the thread with genuine responses.

    Proper form is we throw on pithy-but-pointless comments so that we don't have to feel bad when it eventually goes in the dumper.

    I have a new SRAM (6 weeks ago) and it goes around and around, so far. It has already had two bathes. It likes to be clean.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I don't joke about the chain I use...

    I'll remember the pointless a pithy rule for next time.

    I've had nothing but bad luck with sram chains the past two years, but have actually had good luck with a shimano chain.

    I've used SRAM chains since 2005. All good things. I liked Shimano chains too...no powerlink.

    My rides are totally on flat roads, No hills period.
    Mineral Spirits with chain saw oil. 4 parts to one.
    Remove and clean the chain every 500 miles or so.

    Shimano chains for ever, here. Never broke one, don't take 'em off till they're worn out. Happy camper.

    Yeah. I've tried various home made brews throught the years and they seem to only attract grit and crap. But of course, that is only my opinion and experience. I drive on roads and trails and lots of miles of hills ,trails and so on.

    That's interesting. Myself, I have only had bad luck with Shimano chains and cassettes.
