Wippermann ConneX 10 Speed Chain compatible with KMC conector link?
I just recently bought a wipperman 10spd chain but it didnt come with any connector links. Can I just use these to connect the chain? They specify that it is compatible with shimano and KMC chains but no mention of wipperman
The Connex links are extremely easy to attach and remove without tools. Some of the other links need to be squeezed with pliers and can sometimes be tricky to remove.
Attach each half to an end of the chain, turn the links 90 degrees to the chain, and slide them together. The bottom of the link in the photo (the bottom of the "U" shaped hole) needs to be on the "inside" of the chain, facing the hub when it goes around a cog.
My connex link has lasted for at least two Campagnolo chains.
But for the KMC chain link, you can buy 6 for the money of 1 connex connector. plus its reusable too and doesnt require tools to connect like the connex as well. Just wondering if anyone has used it since I am hoping to save a few bucks and they both have good reviews.
