This appears to be a good general purpose replacement bike chain, as supplied mine consisted of 116 links plus a Quick Link which was slightly bent and even after straightening defeated all of my attempts to clip it into position, but I joined the chain in the standard fashion using my own chain tool. I hadn't realised how badly worn my old chain was - at 114 links it seems longer than the new one, it must have stretched!! The slippage that made my bike all but unrideable has vanished and the bike feels (almost) like new again.

Shimano again, does the job with Shimano quality, but you might consider a KMC chain which has the "missin link" i personally use KMC chains because of this feature and they have not let me down in thousands of miles of cycling.
Overall back to the Shimano chain yeah good quality finish for the price but you need a chain pin extractor to fit or shorten the chain, but you will need this to do shorten any chain.
I would recommend this chain alongside a KMC chain depending on price, the choice will be yours.

Son's bike had an issue with the chain slipping and seemed to be down to the odd link being kinked. Put this on and it solved the issue.
The chain did need a couple of links taking out, but was easy enough fit. For a top tip, if you're doing this yourself, get a half-decent link splitter. Overall, a good value chain, especially when the local cycle shop wanted £12 for a chain and £12 to fit.

Excellent value and appears good quality. Easy to rejoin with the right tool.(Almost impossible otherwise). I believe some joining rivets have a break off bullet end to ease insertion. Inserting this rivet takes a little bit of 'feel' to insert it far enough but not too far. The pressure on the insertion tool can be felt to ease off just as it passes through the last link.

Perfect replacement for my hybrid that had been badly neglected, and the chain had rusted nearly solid. Used a chain tool to remove the old one, and with a bit of effort put the new one on and it appears to work fine. Taken it out on a 10 mile journey to test it and it worked perfectly.

it's just a chain so it either works or it doesn't. It worked for me as I changed the rear gear cassette at the same time, which is the best way of going about it. New parts don't fit old parts as they wear together.
