i also have one of these chains, bought it from Ben's Cycle last fall. i LOVE it. i put it on my fixed-gear Fuji Track Pro: custom all-black paint, full dura-ace NJS group, clipless pedals, Cinelli stem, Syntace bullhorns, Brooks saddle, and HED trispoke front wheel. the chain gets lots of comments - possibly the most asked-about aspect of my bike other than my trispoke.
on a practical level, it's super sturdy and heavy, very good for a fixed-gear. when I first put it on my bike, the result was a completely SILENT ride - amazing. after a year with it, having ridden through the winter, it's still very quiet as long as I keep it clean and lubed.
i haven't ridden this bike on the track, but I do 30-40 miles a day on it around NYC, and the chain has always been a solid, no-issues component of my bike.
