  • Shimano CN-HG40 6, 7 and 8 Speed 116 Link Bike Chain with Connecting Link is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent chain, bad connector The chain is excellent but I was not able to connect it using the link that was included. I have read the reviews, watched videos, I bent it inwards, outwards, used pliers but it just wont connect. In the end I had to buy a different type of quick link and I was able to connect it in seconds and it is just as secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimano CN-HG40 chain I can't believe that such a brilliant chain comes in at such a reasonable price. Truly amazing value for money. After trying in vain to readjust my gears, I finally thought that the problem must lie with my tired and old chain. I went on line and saw this 7- speed chain for under £10. I reserved it, and the next day collected it from my local branch of Halfords. Even the member of staff had to question the price. I have since purchased two more ( just in case anyone bikes in the household ever need one ) ! A very happy chap I am.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Chain.. Can't get too excited about a chain, but it's well packed, original, and inexpensive. Although I watched YouTube videos on fitting the connecting Quick Link I still found it difficult to get it to snap in to place.... hard on the thumbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Works well with Shimano HG cassette etc. Some reviews say it's hard to fit the connecting link. Here's how I did it - run the chain over highest gear (smallest cog) - tie the chain cage forward (using a bungee strap for example) this allows the chain to have enough slack so that the chain can be grabbed with both hands, bend chain inwards and clip the link in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimano cassette and chain There's little to say about these things besides they're great value, work well, and are most cost effectively bought from the halfords website and collected from one of their shops.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor chain, poor fitting or just bad luck After taking my bike in for the fifth time, every time i took it in when suggested by staff they said best come back, got fitted and after two short rides toralling forty minutes the chain broke on the way to work, pretty inconvenient, but you never plan for something to break. So back to the store, queue agsinn and had replaced with a cheaper chain The service at this point was good
