Pros: amazing value, great quality, knowledgeable and friendly service
Cons: the chain 'quick' link is tricky but does the job
"The chain was of good quality not considering the low price.
Easily fitted and works well with new derailleur (also from Halfords).
I found the service from the cycle team exceptionally good.

Pros: cheap and branded make
"OK, so it's a chain, but easy to install means you need to know how to shorten it if it's too long. Fortunately I do but it may not be a case of juist putting it on and adding the link. Keep your old chain and check the number of links first before fitting it. Plenty of stuff on t'internet showing how to shorten a chain, either with a chain tool (easier) or a hammer and nail (cheaper and not much more difficult)."

"The chain was perfect, I changed it in conjunction with a derailer and it has made a massive difference. Changing gears is also very smooth and seamless.
The chain was a little tricky to put together as at first glance, the joining link seems a bit short. I found holding the chain at a slight angle made it easy to click in to place."
