    Rohloff SLT 99 Chain

    Hi
    Thinking of buying one of these chains, anyone know if you can use a powerlink?

    Other posters have indicated YES! (I'm a Powerlink fan, but despite my Rohloff fanaticism, I've never used a Rohloff chain!)

    Also heard good things about the Wippermann Connex Connector as a better (i.e. easier) working alternative to the SRAM.

    No...you cannot use powerlinks with the Rohloff chains. They don't fit.


    Rohloff recommends that you use their chain breaker/joiner and this is what I use on my Rohloff chains.

    The chains last a looooong time, are very high quality and if you lube / clean them fairly regularly they do an enormous amount of miles.

    Where do you get a Rohloff chain from? I've been trying to get one in the US for a while.
