Learn more about chain sizes.

There are two main chain sizes, 1/2 x 3/32 and 1/2 x 1/8. The 1/2 refers to the distance from pin to pin. The 3/32 and 1/8 refer to the width of the space between the inside sideplates. 1/2 x 3/32 chains are referred to as "derailleur chains" because they're narrow chains for use with bicycles with derailleur gearing. Note: When buying this type of chain be sure to get the one made for the number of cogs on your rear wheel, such as 8-, 9- or 10-speed. The other size chains, 1/2 x 1/8 are referred to as "coaster-brake" or "BMX chains" because they're wider, and for use with coaster-brake, BMX and certain 3-speed drivetrains. If you have any questions about chain compatibility, please contact us.

Commuting, Casual Riding
I have a 95 trek 7000zx not the most spectacular bike of its time however for an 18 yr old kid it was nicer and more luxurious than the car I owned. Always took good care of her and now it's 2013 and I ride for my health every morning before work. Needed some other things but needed a new chain in order to get the other items. Chain is great for casual/ commuting. I suppose if you ride like I do getting up to top speed and trying to hold it for however long you ride for you should find this chain to be more than a fair deal.
