Hi there. I've read that the conneX link made by Wipperman is compatible with 9 speed chains. I use a Dura Ace 9 and despite my best efforts, can't get that link to 'lock' in. So, my question is: is the link compatible with most 9 speed chains or just the one manufactured by Wipperman?

They should work with any chain. Are you sure that you don't have an outer plate on one of the chain ends? This would make it impossible to snap together. Also check your links to make sure you didn't get a 10 speed link. My buddy did and I got it together but the chain wouldn't roll smoothly over the derailleur because it was too tight.

Connex link works fine with DA 9 sp chain. Never had a problem and have always used Shimano chains. You are definitely doing something wrong. Although I must say, I have always considered them to be pretty straightforward.
Maybe you could send in a picture of how you are trying to put it on?

Thanks for the info, guys. You are right, It's straightforward. I even went to their webpage and viewed their little 'see how it works' Flash segment.

Thanks again.
