You have done well to get that mileage. My last DA 9000 chain had to be replaced at about 3,000 miles. The newer series chains have a much shorter life span than the older series chains.

The 50/34 chainrings are the Dura Ace original crankset. They have the same miles as the chain, 3,000. I always ride on pavement. The lube I use is Boeing T-9.

I am quite sure what your implication is. I feel this chain should last much longer than 3,000 miles. I would just like to know if 3,000 miles is what I should expect the life of the chain to be...
