Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised Bought as a replacement for a 20 year old Trek 930 with a 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, very easy to install especially with the powerlink option. If resizing is required then a chain pin tool will be needed. After a 10 mile ride over some rough and gritty terrain the chain was quiet and performed exactly as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect adjustable chain I bought the chain for my wife's cannondale mountain bike. I had to shorten the chain to the length of the original. It is quite easy to do if you have the tool. The interlocking system was easy to use and worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Works as intended on my commuter bicycle with 7sp cassette. FYI if you encounter chain slip your cassette is worn and needs replacing. Mine started slipping since I never changed my cassette out (20 years old!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok, but did not work well for me I bought this last fall, to replace a KMC chain that lasted 4,000 miles in a year and a half. This lasted less than 700 miles. I would not buy this again and would think twice about buying another SRAM chain.

The Powerlink 8-Speed Chain will not work with a 5-speed cassette.
