I installed this chain on my Trek 820 mountainbike on Feb 4 (2009); on May 28, I put my bike in the shop for occasional chain-skipping, especially on the 1st and 2nd chainrings. The shop expert told me the chain was stretched and couldn't believe it was only in use for a few months. Since I have other bikes, I logged less than 500 miles on this chain. Even though the price was very low, I don't think the chain is worth buying, given its short lifetime. Next time I'll spend $15-$20 and get a better quality chain; a stretched chain can quickly damage your chainrings - so think twice before buying the least expensive chain.
