Campagnolo permalink discontinued?????(3 posts)

Campagnolo permalink discontinued?????RichC
Apr 7, 2002 12:31 PM
I was on the Campagnolo web-site down-loading some instruction sheets and noticed that the three latest items are in respect of a new HD chain. This does not appear to use the permalink but some new-fangled joining link that looks like it needs another special tool!!

Has anybody heard anything about this chain, and is it replacing the old one?
YES, New Campy HD-Linkunobtainium

Per Dan at Campy USA the HD-Link is replacing the Permalink. It just started shipping the past week or so.

Are they intentionally trying to get all of us to buy non-Campy chains? Another chain, another connector, another stupid installation process (compared to standard), and yet another proprietary tool (that you can't really carry with you)?

I think a Wipperman will be my next chain.
