I was hoping to continue to use this perfectly fine Dura Ace 7700 9 spd chain I have but avoid using
Shimano's little replacement pins. SRAM says that their gold 9 speed Power Links have been designed
ONLY for use on a SRAM 9 speed chain. Fine I understand the liability issues and the high degree of
tolerancing that goes into these things, but I was wondering if perhaps someone has actually tried
this (putting a Power Link on a 7700 chain)?

Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks,

David

I was reluctant to try this at first, but was reassured by that fact that a lot of people here have
done it with no problems. I now have this setup on all my bikes and it works great. I find myself
much more likely to clean the drivetrain since using the powerlink.

I concur. I use the SRAM powerlink on all my Shimano chained bikes with zero problems

Watch the fact that you use the correct powerlink. In my opinion ther are two, a goldcollar one for
9-speed and a black one for 8speed Sramchains. You have to try which one is working on the 9-speed
Shimanochain the best.

Seems from some responses that this will work, but you could also use a Super Link. See:
http://www.lickbike.com/i0338150.htm

I find it somewhat curious that Lickton's (who I understand contracted with Forster to manufacture
the Super Link when Craig discontinued production) spells it both "SuperLink" and "Superlink" on the
page, yet it's "Super Link" (two words) on the packaging.
