    Should I run this chain?

    SO after a week of layin on the floor my bike is up and running again, just got my new wheels and disc set on, ALL SET TO GO! WOO!

    Well as I return from a fellow rider's dorm I jumped a set of stairs (I bunny hopped before them so that I would land on the stairs and ride down them) when I landed amidst stairs something whent wrong, I could tell at the moment but when I came off the set I knew. I could hear my chain dragging........#$%^& I thought. This chain is only about two months old (I seriously broke the last one) so as I gather my chain I realize my powerlink (SRAM) is no where to be found!

    SO here is my question, the powerlink I installed today was obviously not snapped into place (I cant remember that I did it and I took my Adderall, so I should have a good memory of todays events). Would you replace the chain, or just buy a new powerlink?
    THANX

    ummm...

    Buy a chain tool, and link the Sram chain together. Just because it doesn't have the power link doesn't make it unuseable.

    Just make sure the chain isn't twisted before you reuse it.
