I bought a new bike (Lemond Zurich) and I'd like to know if there are Powerlinks (like the ones that
come with SRAM chains) that I can use with
it. I don't want to screw around with the stupid Shimano $5 pins, but I hate to toss a new chain if
I don't have to.

Thanks!

Any SRAM 9-speed PowerLink should work fine. They work for me.

Just use the SRAM, 9sp, Gold link.

Why mess with imitations? get a Craig Super link III. It's made to better tolerances than your
_chain_ is.

I've used them on my Sh chains for over a decade now. Never once regretted it.

May you have the wind at your back. And a really low gear for the hills! Chris

I agree wholeheartedly except that Craig hasn't made the Super Link for years. Now manufactured by
Forster, but from all appearances the same fine product.
