SRAM vs. Durace chain- YOU WERE DEFINITELY RIGHT!(6 posts)

SRAM vs. Durace chain- YOU WERE DEFINITELY RIGHT!mazobob

After reading a post on SRAM vs Durace chains I decided I would try the Durace chain with the rest of my durace group( 2 years old)and I must say it does shift smoother! I usually go through 4 chains per year and two cassettes. I ride about 10,000 miles per year and do all of my own maintenance.
I got caught up in the SRAM due to the easy removal for cleaning. But shifting is faster and quieter with the Durace chain.
Thanks so much! You guys know your stuff

A Sram gold 9 speed link works with a Shimano 9 speed chain.Best of everything.

Even better is a Dura-Ace chain with a Craig Superlink to couple the ends. I've been using them for over eight years without any problems. Wonderful little devices, and easier to disconnect than the SRAM Powerlink.

Bob,
You can buy a 9 sp connex link (made by wipperman), knock a link out of your Dura-ace chain and get the best of both worlds. Chain can be taken off in 5 sec without tools and they don't affect the performance of shifting either. At least I can't notice any difference. They cost about 3 bucks.
Where do I find any of these links???? nmt-bill
