Do you have anything other than that to make you believe it's fake? It's not unknown, to have counterfeit products. The Chinese are pretty adept at revers eng. Pretty much anything.

The old chain and cassette only have 100 miles on them. I took it to a shop because I gave up on trying to figure it out, the quick link on the new chain gave it away apparently.

I havent been able to find real SPD cleats in a couple years. The pair I bought @ the local shop turned out to be fake too. The rubbers peal off in about 3 weeks.

No, but I have ridden through Hungry Horse, the best little damn town in Montana. (There is a reservoir and small dam there.)

Yah, I don’t get it. They can’t make a ton on a fake $50 dollar chain.

But, they can make a lot on a ton of fake chains.

Good Morning. It's a new day.

While waiting for the bus this morning a woman comes out of a corner store with coffee, etc. Goes to her running, unlocked Audi crossover. As she opens the door, I notice two kids in the back.

WTH are people thinking? There is probably at least one carjacking every day in the city. Just last night a 60 year old man was shot and killed during a jacking. Last week a running car with two kids in was stolen. Fortunately, the kids were found unharmed.

It's not like my neighborhood is bad, but it borders an area that is not as nice, so you can get some bleeding over. Last week the cops ended up shooting someone outside a bar after he fired at least one shot into the bar and would not drop his gun. That was literally one block from where she left her car running this morning.

These weren’t even cheap, but apparently Amazon bins every part together in their warehouse regardless of seller, so I got a fake chain and a bunch of headaches.

They already refunded me the money though, so there’s that

Man, that fuggin' blows. A good warning for us, though, and I'm glad that you got your monies back.

I should have known sooner honestly, I never had these issues with the stock chain.

Still kinda fancy. I suggest you limit your search to "Kaczynski Style cabin" to find something reasonably priced.

That's my point. NIMBY people are a strong force. Be it social issues, or outright dangerous issues.

Pretty high up guy in our NJ office was given a breathalyzer Friday morning because of his appearance and behavior. Blew a 0.20. I saw him Thursday and noticed that his face was beet red in the morning. We have great treatment and support programs here.
