Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

No issue, and certainly a LOT quieter than running with the SRAM 1090 chain. I usually swap the Shimano pin for a SRAM powerlock or a Whipperman link though.

Don't like it. Bought it from my LBS because I didn't have any chains on hand, was cheaper than DA and same price as 105 (go figure).

It slips sometimes.

I like KMC (both DX10 and X10SL) with SRAM.
