    HG-93 chain and a quick link

    I've been using Sram chains with the quick link and have been very pleased with them. I ended up with an HG-93 Shimano chain in a package deal and would like to use a quick link with it. Any reason not too? Can I buy just the Sram link? Thanks!

    Yes, you can buy the SRAM Powerlink for $3.75 at http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...Powerlink.aspx

    I'm not sure what an LBS price would be, $5?

    I'll let others comment on the SRAM link and Shimano chain compatibility.

    I've been using the SRAM links on Shimano chains (8 and 9 speed) for several years with no problems.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    What's the Difference with SRAM chains?

    I just popped on a 12-17 Shimano Ultegra CS 6600 cassette and need a bit longer chain and want to know the difference, besides price, with the SRAM PC 1090R, 1090 & 1070 chains. Their website guides read identical - e.g. Hollow Pin, Power Lock, Nickel Silver, etc. I see only a slight variation with the inner place color. So, what's the diff & the best to get? Thanks
