Hey where in Ontario do you live? And yeah those chains will do fine as long as you're not hard on chains with sprocket stalls or grinds. Im actually running a chain from canadian tire right now:p

If I were you I'd only use it as a temporary chain until you got something nicer.

I've broken these chains rather easily in the past crankin at a set. When a chain snaps from excessive stretching, you may get the classic knee-to-stem smash.

Yes you should. If you want to be safer buy 2 just in case.

they arent terrible, and if you're low on funds by all means go get one. but i've found that they arent the most reliable out there
