    Slink with SRAM chain?

    Hi all.
    I know its probably been beaten to death, but I can't find the specific answer I am looking for.
    I have a SRAM PC 830 8-speed chain (cheap cause I'm poor) and need a half link. Can I use the 3/32" Gusset Slink with this chain? Will I have to use a SRAM power link on each side of the Slink?
    Thanks

    You can use the Gusset half link, but it's just a little too wide to use with a Sram Powerlink. What you want to do is buy two of these:

    Then install one on each side of the Gusset half link. You'll then have the best half link setup available. You can still use a Powerlink in elsewhere in the chain for ease of removal.
