    You are still using the wrong term, and there are quick connect links for 10-speed chains, though some are not suppose to be reused.

    is there any other kind of quick connects besides these, and the ones found on single speeds

    My fingers hurt just thinking about a masterlink- I hate those things.

    i guess it actually depends upon the use. A master link or quick-release link is a bicycle chain accessory that allows convenient removal and reconnection of an installed bicycle chain without the need for a chain tool.

    The PowerLock connector that comes with the sram 10spd chains is reusable...I know sram doesn't say it is, but you can reopen it with a pair of pliers, it's just not as hand-friendly as the 9 spd version.

    I plan on using one on the next shimano chain I use.

    Highly recommend IRD Snaplink. Works with Shimano, SRAM, KMC 10 speed. 9 speed version also available. Smooth and easy on and off, without tools. Cleaning lubing dirty link with WD40 recommended prior to removal

    And I found that if you (mistakenly) mix half a 9 and half an 8 speed SRAM connector they still work very well on an 9 speed chain.

    As a youngster pro bike mechanic, and as a result; broke, I would save the left over links from new chain installs. Late at night my bong and I would stitch these bits-and-pieces into whole chains for my own bike. Never broke one, never paid for one.:thumbsup:

    well, like most i use a masterlink more often and also keeps a chain cutter in case of some urgent use.
  • 11-24-2012
    both, but if i had to go with one I would go with the chain tool.

    Yes I always use Chain Cutter.
