    Looking to replace campy 10 spd ultra-narrow 5.9 mm chain. Mavic is 6.2 mm, is it really compatible? Doesn't sound like it is.

    Anyone tried it? and does anyone know of a 5.9mm chain with a breakable link?

    thanks

    Any new Wipperman 10 speed chain is 5.9 w/ link.
    KMC DX10SC

    Or use Superlink IV with Campy chain

    Original Campag 10s chain was 6.2mm. Early 2007 went to 5.9mm. Mavic will work fine but a 5.9 is a little quieter. I recommend a Campag ultra chain(5.9mm)with a Wipperman snap link, what we sell.

    Wippermann links are not 5.9mm, a tad wider. Whatever that's worth. :rolleyes:

    What has been your experience with the Superling IV? I have one, but haven't snapped it on yet. I have been running connex links for the past couple years, but figured to give it a try on my campy 5.9 chain. Any thoughts?
