Easy fit, great shifting
Used this chain on a 1966 Dawes i rebuilt with a 2 x 6 gearing system and this chain keeps the drive line smooth
It does the job intended.
Good cheap chain to replace an old worn out one on a hybred bike.
Very good quality
Fitted nicely with quick release but wore incredibly fast. Fully worn at 1.0 on chain measuring tool in approx 6 months (luckily I randomly checked). I mainly only ride once or twice a week.
You are correct in saying that with only weekend riding this chain should easily outlast 6 months. Assuming the cassette and cahinring were not worn and that the chain was oiled correctly, it should last a very long time.
If you feel that this chain is faulty, please return it to us for inspection.

Searched everywhere for new chain for my 20yr old "Rayleigh Pioneer Deluxe" (5 speed x 2), only to be told "don't make parts for those anymore!". Then I saw this item listed for 3/8 speed. Purchased and fitted this chain and it works perfectly - and its identical in length so no alteration required!.
Everyone can buy, very good quality
Excellent value for money, robust and easy to install. I have been replacing my MTB chain every few hundred miles and I always use this same chain.
It disconnected two times at the connecting link, during the ride rushed me into danger, it worn out after 1500km.
Sorry to hear you've had issues with this chain. The chain is made by KMC which is a very well known bike chain brand (often said to be better than Shimano)
Unfortunately the quick link is always the weakest link in the chain no matter than brand. I would expect it to last longer than 1500km though. This could be down to a few things from the wear on the cassette & chain rings if the chain is replacing an old one or how much oil is used on the chain (less is more in this case). More oil on the chain attracts more dirt and dust which in return wears the chain out a lot quicker than if there was very little oil used.
