Shimano, KMC both make fine 10 speed chains. I do prefer the connecting links to assemble the chain with, and not the Shimano pin method. Some Shimano chains do come with connecting links, some with the pin only. Andy

You have many, many options. Any Sram that starts with 10 is a ten speed chain, There are numerous Shimano, FSA, KMC, Connex that are all compatible. You just have to make sure it is a 10 speed chain. The difference between them is weight and price. IME, the higher priced ones do not last any longer.

This is as good as any for performance, durability and price. This seller is very reputable, no fakes, and I have used them a few times. Prices are high at the moment, but this is a pretty good deal in the current circumstances. KMC X10 10-Speed Stretch-Proof Bike Chain Road MTB X10.93 fit Shimano SRAM Campy | eBay

What's the problem? Sram 1031 chain should work the same as any other 10 speed chain, except for aesthetics and weight.

The Connex does last longer but is so expensive you could buy three of the shorter lived Shimano or KMC chains for the same money.

I bought an ultrasonic cleaner and a hot pot. Every couple of months I unclip the chain, put it in the ultrasonic cleaner AFTER it has come up to temperature and give it 5 minutes of cleaning. The hot pot is heating up with pure wax with a couple of tablespoons of finely granulated Teflon powder in it. I leave it in the wax for long enough for the chain to stop bubbling meaning the wax is penetrating the links. I then leave it in another 20 minutes. Be very careful removing the chain because it is hotter than hell. I then hang it on a chain to drip dry and cool to normal temperatures.

You'll find it difficult to put the quick link back on because the chain is now so slippery. Doing this I'm getting extremely good chain wear.

The cassette stays clean and the chain only gets mildly dirty before I re-wax.

The cleaning solution I use is from a good auto parts store and is in a purple plastic bottle called "Super Clean".

Thanks for the reply and info, @RiceAWay. I have a Connex 10 sp and will use it later this year. I bought it only because it was at a low price and it made for a good chance ti try one. I did try the chain waxing for a while and did not think it worth the bother, and the chain having to be rewaxed with not that many miles. My chain was cleaner, but I really do not mind cleaning a chain relatively often. I think about trying it again, but it has not happened.
