Really can't go wrong with a KMC chain. The only thing I'll warn of is that the clip-on link, which is really easy to fit, does have pins that protrude further out that the other links. So if you've got a tight fit going through a chain tensioner with a 1/8" chain with a normal master link, you may find that this one snags going through the cages around the jockey wheels. If you've got a hub gear with a chain tensioner you might want to look at teh 3/32" chains.

What are chains?
The chain is the crucial element that drives the rest of your drivetrain.
Who needs a chain?
All conventional bikes have a chain and they don’t last forever. You will need to replace your chain if it breaks or if a chain checking tool shows it’s too worn.
What are the choices?
Chain choice can be bewildering – it’s crucial you get the right chain width for your bike. Most chains don’t list the width, instead stating the type of cassette it’s suitable for e.g. eight-speed or 11-speed. Some will list the width, though, such as 3/32in.
What should I buy with them?
Every chain needs chain lube to keep it running squeak free.
Don’t delay changing a worn chain. Not only are you at risk of being stranded when it snaps, but a worn chain can cause wear to the rest of your drivetrain, which can be a costly mistake.
