    Powerlink (or equivalent) every time for me. There's no need for the faff of joining chains with a pin nowadays. KMC and SRAM both have their own version (I think KMC's is called missing link but I usually get them mixed up) but they are both the same to all intents and purposes.

    Hypocrisy is only a bad thing in other people.

    I have joined my first chain, would you believe, with a powerlink on a SRAM chain and I have to say it was a doddle. I probably wouldn't have bothered if it was without one of these.
  • I used a sram powerlink on a new chain for the first time on Saturday and could not believe how easy it was.
