Removable Link for Campy C9 9-speed chain?(4 posts)

Removable Link for Campy C9 9-speed chain?JBF
Jul 1, 2002 8:35 AM
I run a 9-speed Campy drive train and have a new C9 chain that I would like to add a removable link for ease of cleaning. Can anyone recommend one over the others that are out there? I am aware of the Craig Superlink, Wipperman Connex removable link and SRAM Powerlink. Is one better than the others for my chain? What is the downside of adding one to my chain?

The only one of the above that I have used is the Connex link. I've used it with a Wipperman chain and a Campy chain no problems whatsoever. A friend who switched from the Superlink to the Connex said the Connex went on a lot easier.

The only downside is that, since you can now remove your chain at will you will clean it more often.

I have a superlink on my campy 10 speed chain. The only downside is what to do with the permalink that comes with the chain??

Leave the Permalink in place and remove one of the other links. I use the Forstner Superlink (formerly Craig) in this fashion and it works fine. It beats having to wrestle the permalink off!!!
