I need to replace my worn-out chain. I have full Ultegra on my bike. What do you all recommend?

Thanks
Matt

I was running a SRAM 89R on my Campy and it didn't shift smoothly and was constantly chattering. I switched to a Campy chain and now everything is smooth again. I posted this a while back and someone responded that he had the exact same experience with SRAM and Shimano. I don't recommend the SRAM to anyone.

I've been using Sram PC89 chains on my road bike for the past two years and have zero problems. I use Shimano and unlike the person you mentioned, my works flawlessly. For my new chain and cassette I will be changing to Sram cassettes and chains. If it worked for Tyler, I see no problem with it working for me. =)

SRAM is little long side even when new and will wear quicly. I have both my road bikes (rr+tt) Campagnolo C-10 10-Speed chains(9-s D-A bikes). Since only difference 9/10 speed chains is out wide,inside chains are same wide so no brolem in 9-speed.

C-10 lasts for my experienses 2-3 times compared on PC89R. I used them only in last summer. This summer and last winter was c-10 time. I think C-chains are manufactured with better tolerances and harder material. I haven't got Shimano chain for 3 years because they breaked in every race on my mtb's. I weight ~190lbs and in this summes I have had 25 races.
