Which 11 Speed Chain?

Having done over 400 miles on my Trek, primarily in sloppy conditions, Iím gearing up for the inevitable chain replacement. The hard part is choosing which one...[/size][/color]

I'd be expecting that you should be getting 5 or 10 times more life span than that. Just give it a good degrease and re-lube and it should last a lot longer.

To answer your question though, both Shimano and SRAM have 11-speeds with Quick-Link/Power-Link which should be fine, no need to go exotic. In my experience the weakest part of the chain is where you join it, which is why I mention the links.

KMC have never let me down for chains, good value for money too.Haven't gone beyond 10 speed though.
