Easy to fit, working well

Posted17 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Got this chain from the Evans website which was easy to use and worked well. The chain was easy to fit unfortunatly the new chain showed up a worn rear casset which ment a trip into the Evans store in Brighton for new sprockets. The guys in the shop were really helpful so that wasnt that big a problem.

Improved Bike Performance

Posted05 August 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I never appreciated until now how much a chain can stretch over time. I noticed that the chain wasn't sitting on the chain wheel properly and was riding up the teeth, though not slipping.
Ordered new chain from Evans and was a liitle apprehensive about fitting it myself, but it was very easy. Bought a Topeek chain breaker from Evans at the same time, and just followed the manufacturers instructions that came with it.
The bike now rides like new, very smooth. No need to adjust the gears change in any way. I wish I had done this years ago.
Delivery was by return of post, so thank you for a speedy service.

Not a weighty chain

Posted09 April 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value, easy to fit
This is my first chain I've ever bought and fitted, light weight and really easy to fit. All you need is a chain tool. And pop the pin in... Done.
Been out a few times and it feels great.
