Excuse the dumb question but I have a Shimano 9 speed chain. Can I add a KMC or SRAM type joining link to make removal easier?

If so, is there any difference SRAM or KMC?



  • Yes and no.

    Yes as long as you use a 9 speed SRAM or KMC link.

    KMC and SRAM links are identical just the colours are different
