Details

SRAM's PC-890 Chain is a smooth operator wherever the road and trail take you. It's smooth, quick shifting and built to last. Plus, it includes SRAM's PowerLink for easy, no-tools installation.

There are two main chain sizes, 1/2 x 3/32 and 1/2 x 1/8. The 1/2 refers to the distance from pin to pin. The 3/32 and 1/8 refer to the width of the space between the inside sideplates. 1/2 x 3/32 chains are referred to as "derailleur chains" because they're narrow chains for use with bicycles with derailleur gearing. Note: When buying this type of chain be sure to get the one made for the number of cogs on your rear wheel, such as 8-, 9- or 10-speed. The other size chains, 1/2 x 1/8 are referred to as "coaster-brake" or "BMX chains" because they're wider, and for use with coaster-brake, BMX and certain 3-speed drivetrains. If you have any questions about chain compatibility, please contact us.

Comments:

I purchased this chain as an after-market replacement for the OEM Shimano 105 on my old workhorse Trek 2100. The PowerLink is the selling point...I could easily remove and clean the chain. The negative of this chain is that it's weak. I was hammering up a hill when it jumped off the chain wheel. After rigging it back up, it jumped again a few meters up the road. A closer inspection revealed that I twisted a link! I had only about 500 miles on it, but I trashed it and will go back to Shimano.

I had this chain on my bike and after riding about 500 miles it broke on a ride. At first i thought that it was a bad link. After the 5th time it broke in about 550 miles a litteraly threw it away.
