Quicklink for Shimano 10 spd?
I used a SRAM Quicklink on my Ultegra 9 speed for years. (Quicklink allows the chain to easily be taken off without any tools for easy and more thorough cleaning) It worked great with both Shimano and SRAM chains. I now have a new Ultegra 10 speed with a Shimino chain, and I am looking to add a Quicklink or similar chain link . LBS tells me that there is no such device for a shimano 10 speed. They say my only option is to buy a Wipperman 10 spd chain, which comes with a "quicklink-like" link.
I went to SRAM web site and could find nothing (chains, link, or cassettes) for 10 spd. I found the Wipperman link, called Connex link, that can be bought separately. Does anyone know if the Connex link can be used on a Shimano 10 spd? Or, is there another solution that won't have me scrap a new chain well before its time??
