My Shimano chain snapped while on a ride the other day and I've got a ride out planned next weekend so I need a new chain and fast. I want a KMC chain but when I've looked on Wiggle there's a few different ones. I'm running a 9-speed cassette, could someone just give me a brief explanation of the differences in the chains so I can choose and buy one please?

Cheers!

    I just buy their cheapest ones. More expensive generally just means lighter.

    KMC X9.93 is the one you want, one up from the basic chain (X9.73), keeps nicer, cracking value, tough and stretches less than more expensive chains weirdly. Pick 'em up new on ebay for 12 quid.
  • Awesome, cheers Frank! ;-)
