opinions on 9 speed chains
1) don't want to spend a fortune
2 ) not worried about ""bling "
3) just want a good every day bit of kit

Only used KMC for the last few years and used all of them in the X9 range. I like the Ti ones they d but dear. Others in range seem to be about the same just different finishes, i.e. silver or grey and silver. all worked for me.

The only brand I have had trouble with is SRAM. KMC or Shimano work much better in my experience.
