This was a great price for a high end chain to replace the one I've had for many years on my Giant TCR1 bicycle. Not many 9 speeds around much any more. So far it has been everything like the great original chain it has replaced.
BTD offered a really great price on this Ultegra 9-speed chain, so I snatched up a bunch of them. My main bikes - road, touring & mountain - are all 9 speed, so these will keep me supplied for years.
My experience has been that the ultregra will last for many years.
awesome chain- i don't ride a lot, but remove it and clean my cogs & chainrings all the time cuz there's nothing better than a silent drive (no grit). i mark the chain every time (with a bread-bag twisty) i undo the quick-link (KMC) so the same edges act against my chainrings every time. made a real difference for me- as the chain edges soften, the chain climbs the chainrings more readily. only one guy gave me this advice, and i'm glad i followed it. i'm using a 7-speed 13-21 dura-ace uniglide freewheel and avocet 32-42-52 crankset. thanks btd for the great price. if you want one, better do it soon- get 'em while you can...
I had to replace a generic chain that came with a bike from bikesdirect-- the old chain wore out in 600 miles, which was subpar. I was surprised by how much quieter and smoother the Shimano chain ran and shifted. I have had it on for another 130+ miles, and I did wipe off most of the sticky original factory grease, and I have applied a lubricant once. It is still much quieter and smoother than the generic chain I had before. This is a good
chain and the price was not bad.
chose the 9-speed width for my vintage italian triple and 7S freewheel combo. it was the widest shimano chain i could find with the mushroomed pins- even the fancy SRAM 991 chain has staked pins. the rear shifting and quietness is phenomenal with this chain. the front shifting feels slippery and must be done with aplomb, yet after months of riding there is no damage to the sides of my chain rings, so i'm pleased. the chain arrived in a plain blue box with 9S, HG, and Zn plating icons. next i'm going to score one for my old nishiki MTB. cheers from Socal.
decided on a 9-speed-width chain for my vintage italian-made triple and dura-acenew winner 7S freewheels. the HG93 chain comes in a plain blue package with HG, Zn plated-link and 9S icons. i use a short config chain (110l) and sprint-caged derailleur. the chain was noticeably quieter and seemed smoother to me than the old HKK ultra-6 chain it replaced. shifting became downright snappy. the KMC 9-speed quick link makes a perfect master as it is just a bit sloppy on the chain- i know that doesn't sound good- it provides an easy to removereplace chain (bare-handed), and that's important to me. i am crazy clean about stuff on my chain and sprockets. i keep a ratty micro fiber in my bag and will pause during a ride to clean them if i am bored at all (and the view is good)! after six months and several hundred miles, i have yet to see any stretch on this chain. will be buying one for my mtn bike soon.
I've had excellent results with the Shimano narrow chains for my 3x9-speed commuter over the years. These chains perform for extended mileage, I typically get 8000 miles for a drive train with Shimano chains during year-round commuting. I'd like it if they came with more than one connecting pin, or packaged together with a quick link, but those are available separately.
Upgraded 2004 Ultegra 9 spd rear der. with Shadow 9 spd rear der. & needed chain32 tooth cassette. Both the chain and cassette are from BTD. Both products are Shimano XT compatible with Ultegra. park. Easy swap from Ultegra to XT components.
This chain works with my 9-speed road and mountain bikes. It is strong and durable. The pin system is easy to install. I have always been happy with Shimano components.
