ok, i was working on my sirrus, as that's going to be my wife's ride (hoping to get her hooked on cycling) and i got the SRAM powerlink for 8 speed (silver color). i got the 9 speed powerlink for my bike and it works wonderful with my shimano 9 speed chain.
but.. today as i was installing the 8 speed powerlink onto the 8 speed shimano chain on the sirrus.. it seem like the shimano chain was too fat (even though on the chain itself says NARROW.. my arse!) anyway, it went through the holes but after i tried to pull on it for it to clip in.. it wouldn't. my guess is that the shimano chain is too fat.
so... because of pulling on it and trying to force that mofo to clip into each other.. hand slipped and now top of my right hand has 3 deep holes from the 52T chainring. broke my wife's heart... i know i know.. i'm her baby.
anyhoo... so it should fit right, i mean no reason why it shouldn't. i'm sure that someone you guys have 8 speed shimano chain with the powerlink.. question is.. was it a pain in the a$$ to install for you? or should i just get a SRAM 8 speed chain and install it on my wife's shimano 8 speed sirrus?
thanks... time to put more neosporin on there...
