Experience has shown me you get what you pay for...

If this is your only transportation and you need a chain to get buy is one thing but to buy a cheap ass chain that could damage the bike or the rider if it fails, I just can't do it....

The one review from the link: "Had to replace it with a DID" and the facr that it costs $30..Hello red flags! It may be safe to use on your Mongoose tho. Good luck with your decision!

You failed to say what yr and model bike you have.
You may be able to find someone parting out a bike that has a decent chain.

Holy geezus! I'd be affraid to put that thing on a pedal bike. Imagine it comming off at 200km/h and doing something fun like attaching itself to your foot.

Dont forget youre also going to need some chain tools. . . I did mine without, like a filthy mcguyver . . . but it was a PITA

How do you know your chain is no good? How many miles on the bike. If your chain is that bad, then your sprockets are prolly shot too.

Chain started clunking lightly after a 300 mile ride all day. it started after getting off the highway. anyway, i thought it was just loose so i tightened it up and the clunking stopped...

the clunk came back a month n a half later, so i decided to clean, lube and retighten the chain again. there is a certain spot where the chain is very tight, and another spot where it gives me over an inch of slack...so i loosed it to the point where the very tight spot gave 3/4" or so slack and the loose spot now had almost 2" so im assuming its over stretched.. the rear sprocket is good, the front might need to be changed too tho.


should i jus swap the front sprocket which i can get locally very cheap $20...im pretty sure the slack is telling me the chain is shot too...
