I am upgrading my new road bike to dura-ace 10 speed but have a problem, the shimano 10 speed chains are useless. Does anyone use the shimano chains or is there another chain that I can use???

The KMC 10SL, or wait for the new 2006 super narrow Campag chain.
Meantime save money and use Ultegra, same basic chain just without the pointless zinc coating.

What's wrong with Shimano 10 speed chains?
And yes I think Ultegra are good too.

1. They snap. Ask Kristian.
2. Shimano state the life expectancy of a DA chain is 1500 km. Cheeky g1ts.

Do they 'snap' or have they not been joined correctly?

Kristian categorically assures us they're not breaking at the joining link. I think his predilection for 52x25 is part of the problem, bending the chain.

Hmmmm. 52x25 = 56". 39x14 = 75". Does he have an aversion to using the inner ring, or are inner rings for wimps?

Small rings for wimps, of course. Quite amusing watching his legs whirl round yet he's on the big ring.
