Shimano's HG73 is a 9-speed chain that's very popular because of its low price, widespread availability and functionality.

In fact, it comes as standard on many new bikes. Shimano use their own special joining pin for their chains and it's essential that you use the correct pin or you'll be eating a huge slice of pavement pie next time you try a gate start at the traffic lights.
