master links and chain sizes


Recommended Posts

Long story but doing an adventure race(eden duo) on a borrowed bike this weekend, about 70kms of mainly provincial road(should have got a cx bike)


Anyway, its an 8 spd bike, will 9spd links be too thin if there's a chain issue?




Ps. The short version of the long story is that my partner won't let me use the ss up montagu pass :-)

I once used a 9 speed link on a 10 speed chain for months without any issues.

The 9 speed link is slightly wider than a 10 speed chain.


Havent tried using it the other way around like you want to, the link might be to narrow.
