    KMC Chains. How Are They Packaged?

    I've bought a few KMC chains over the last year. The Z7's I've bought for the MTB have been boxed thus. But the X9 I just bought from the same vendor, turned up in a bar coded plastic bag despite being advertised as being boxed the same as the Z7? It looks exactly the same as the chain it's...

    Removing Excess Links From New KMC Chain With Tool

    I need to remove about 6 links from a new KMC chain. Which side of the chain do I push on with the tool to force the pin out. Smooth side of pipe or dimpled? Thanks for any advice.

    KMC B1 chain quick-link - re-useable?

    I'm looking at one of these for my cheap hack as I've seen one at a seemingly good price: However, I'll need to remove and refit the chain regularly. The supplier has confirmed that it has a quicklink included, however have failed to comment on how reuseable this is - and looking at the...

    Do KMC SL/EL 11-speed chains come with a missing link or do you have to purchase separately?Their website doesn't clearly state yes or no.I generally use SRAM chains and they do(or did). Cheers!

    KMC 10sp Quick Link Unbelievably Tight

    Came to give my bike the once over before setting out for a ride on Sunday. Brand new KMC X10.93 chain fitted (now called simply X10, the new black/silver type in the hard plastic case) and quick link that came with the chain in the box. Lubed chain, cleaned off excess, checked brakes, gears...

    KMC X10 - 73 and 93 New Looks

    I ordered a new KMC X10 - 93 chain (£13) and it arrived today. The box it came in simply has 'X10' on it. The chain is also black and silver on every other link.. I first thought that they had sent me the wrong, and cheaper X10 - 73 chain due to the price and looks. I thought I'd been scammed...

    Which KMC 9 speed chain?

    I know there are a few fans of KMC on here so I thought I might try them. Am interested in the cheapest one which is good - not interested in cosmetic finishes. As an example of my approach I have long used SRAM - I use the one up from the bottom as it's my understanding that at this point a...

    2+ KMC X10SL chain links (silver)

    I want to lengthen a new chain slightly and i gather it's more common for people to shorten. I think a couple would be sufficient, so if anyone has a few knocking about they don't need i'd be glad to buy them. Thanks.

    KMC quick links 11sp

    so 9 and 10 speed KMC links are reuseable, but 11 speed are 'single use'! has anyone tried reusing an 11sp KMC link? Will it fail to work properly after the first time of joining and splitting?
