    Newbie Question for Chain Link

    Good Morning Gurus, i have a quick question regarding chain link,
    i bought my mountain bike thru REI LINK, and im a bit confused on what chain link to get.. if it mean 9 speed, i can't use other speed such as 8 or 10 right? also the specs that the rep. told me for the chain link is 1/2" x 11/128" so from here on out im lost. i want to but a spare link just incase maybe on ebay or amazon but im not really sure what will fit on my link. pls help. thanks

    Grab any 9 spd master link (kmc, sram, wipperman). 8 & 10 spd are not the same width. Might as well grab a few while you're at it, I keep a spare link with tool kit on each bike & extra's in the toolbox.

    Good deal... You're set.. I use my old power links from my worn out chains as spares if I have to. So far I haven't broken one, but they're almost never used.
    There is not much choice between rotten apples.
