snap link for campag 10sp

Postby On_What » Thu Jan 10, 2013 15:24 pm

Can anyone reccomend a good snap link for a 10sp campag chain?

Also when replacing my chain cassette combo, I have always bought Campag, which is not exactly cheap, I guess the cassette won't have a cheaper option, but is there a more cost effective chain?

Cheers

I used a Campag chain and KMC link. The links normally come in packets of 2 and cost around £9 for the pair.

I wouldn't bother with a third party chain - Campag ones are well made and last a long time.

I have used KMC chains on both my summer and winter bikes with no problems. I just keep the snap links when I throw away a worn chain, meaning I have a stock of links for emergency use. I've never broken a KMC chain yet so have a large stock of these links!

Re KMC chains and links on Campag bikes.

The profile of the KMC 10-speed chains is similar to Shimano/SRAM. So if you buy a KMC chain to fit on a Campag bike, it'll work fine but if you buy extra "missing links" for it, you'll need the standard KMC (shimano/SRAM sized) link.

KMC also make after-market "missing links" to use on a split 10-speed Campag chain - but these are slightly different in size to the standard ones and are not interchangeable with the standard ones.

A KMC chain on a campag drive train works fine but maybe a bit more nosiey. It's difficult to tell. I use Campag chains alot on campag drivetrain just because they make a very good chain. The only other chain I use are KMC ones also a good chain in whatever form.
