    I prefer KMC chains over Shimano or SRAM. I replace my chains regularly, probably earlier than I have to, and I've yet to have a problem with any of them. I've used the single speed, 8sp, and 10sp...

    Conti Ultra Gatorskins (700x28C) - I just put 8,000 commuting miles in two years on the rear tire with no flats. Wet traction sucks, but they are good for dry conditions. Ride quality is okay.
