Guys, one last flogging for the preverbial horse.
I've got a new SRAM PC-69 9-speed chain. I'm fitting it this weekend. The instructions that came with it say to wrap it around big/big, and add two links, one of which includes the Power Link.
The Sheldon Brown method plus your previous information in other threads pretty much confirms that as well.
So that's what I'm going to do. If anything breaks after that, then as you all agree with the big/big plus one (two!) links method, I shall personally sue the forums, and I will call each one of you as witnesses. Hopefully, this wont need to go to court!
Wish me luck.
