New Chain

I have a Challenge Hurricane and I need a new 9 speed chain. Are the multi speed chains from Wal Mart ok to use.

I can't say for sure, but probably not. The stuff at WallyWorld is probably 6/7/8 speed chain, which is too wide for the spacing on a 9-speed cassette.

I know, quite being cheap. I will go to LBS and buy some Scram chains with power links. Fix it right the first time, right.
