Replacement Chains

YES! Agree with all of the above answers

Shimano chains are crazy, stupid, expensive ripoffs!

There's very little difference between the modern crazy, stupid, expensive ripoff chains than the Shimano Uniglide 600 and DuraAce chains that came out about 1975. They were an amazing improvement over the existing chains of the day. I still have a take off 1975 Uniglide chain that I've run on 4-5 different bikes (low mileage use).

I've heard good things about KMC chains and have one on a bike I bought. I use mostly SRAM PC-850 chains because I can get them at the local shops I deal with for under $20. They look the same as the Shimano chains and work on 6-7-8 speed cassettes and freewheels.

Things aren't always what they seem... Don't believe everything you think!
