shortening a Campy chain

The chain on my bike ( campy record 10 speed setup) is too
long and needs to be shortened.

I'm basically a mountain biker, using sram chains with a
quick link.. and just not familiar with campy stuff.

From what i've read, I need a special tool and a special
link .. is that true? any idea of the cost?

Also, I've heard that a sram 9 speed chain can be used on
this 10 speed setup without any detrimental effects ...
true? this may be a less expensive alternative if it works.

thanks charlie

Yes to the special link if you want to use the Campagnolo
pin but find a Wipperman 10s link and use that.

Not sram but yes to a 105 shimano 9s chain. 'May' be a bit
noisier but it works.

Peter thanks!

and I don't need a special tool... a regular chain tool
will work?

Yuppers - crack that crappy permalink and remove the desired
number of links with a standard chain tool and then follow
the above suggestion.

I don't think I have a permalink or quicklink of any sort on
the campy 10 speed chain.... I'm looking around now for that
wipperman quicklink

I found the wipperman link and also found a campy super link
... the wippeman is for a 6.2mm chain and the campy is for
6.1mm chain. .. is one better than the other or should i
just get whichever is actually available?

thanks

Peter the catalog just says "superlink for campy" ...
doesn't actually say it is a campy product ... so it
probably is a Craig for all I know.
