Five StarsPerfect, just what I wanted.Six sets of quick links, vacuum packed to a card.
5Keep a few around for sparesThese are a must-have for anyone who rides without support staff in tow. Chain breaks? Pop the broken link out and stick one of these in its place. No fuss, no mess, no cursing.On SRAM 10-speed chains, the Power Link is not actually reusable--once you open it, you're supposed to throw it out and replace it. Sure, you can ignore that advice and you'll probably fine. But if you choose to do that, then you should keep a few of these on hand in case SRAM's warning wasn't just a thinly veiled attempt at getting access to your wallet.These even work with Shimano chains so you can quit buying overpriced master-pins--which are pretty much impossible to work with when you're out in the cold, rain, or just plain tired.I would recommend you pick up a Park Tool Master Link Plier - MLP-1C to pop these open. Once they get a bit dirty or clogged with grit, they can be really difficult to pop open.
5Not sure why anyone would stick with rivetsJettisoned the master rivet on my 10 speed chain and 1 link to replace with these bad boys. SO much easier to use/install/remove. Shifting remained normal.I rated it a 5 star durability but haven't ridden much yet. I'll update it if there's a problem.
5Works like a charm.Works great on my 2x9 setup and the Shimano 10sp chain. While I have a 9sp rear cassette, I had to buy a 10sp 2x crank so I needed a chain that rubbed less (cross chaining) in the front ring. While its not technically thin enough to eliminate it when big-big or small-small it does improve the performance.
5Don't leave home without itConsidering how tiny these are, I can't imagine *not* having a couple of master-links in my saddle-pouch. I use these on my sportive bike that runs Shimano Tiagra (10-speed) and I feel perfectly comfortable knowing that, even in the unlikely case I snap a chain on a long ride far away from home, I can swiftly and easily reconnect the chain with a quick yank.
5This is the TrickI hate to need to break chains in order to clean them or replace them. These KMC Missing Links are the ticket for two reasons: They assemble and disassemble without a special tool and they are nickel covered so as not to rust into place. I typically use Wipperman chains when I replace the OEM chain that comes with my bikes. They are very expensive. This past chain-change out I did on my Fargo bike required me to break the chain in order to do a rear derailleur changeout. I could not get the SRAM link out even using a Park ToolPark Tool Master Link Plier - MLP-1C it was stuck together. I had to purchase another chain and I also, at the same time, purchased the KMC since it says it is compatible with both KMC and Shimano chains. Since Shimano is compatible with SRAM, the logic carries over... I attached the chain and the master link and I'm finished. I might add that I purchased a SRAM chain and I could NOT get their master link to completely close just like I couldn't get SRAM's master link to fully open on the old chain. So I'm glad that I had the KMC link available. As far as long term use is concerned, I have a chain with a KMC Missing Link on a Specialized Roubaix with a SRAM chain on it that has at least 5000 miles on it without any problems with the link. Now the chain itself is getting to the point of having to be replaced because the shifting is starting to have problems, but the link is still there doing its stated job.I don't know why those who write say that the link does not last, I would suggest its not the link that is the problem but the whole chain. The chains on a bike is a part that needs constant care and it is not something that you do "once a year." Every month you should make an effort to clean it while its on the bike to get rid of road dirt. After every ride, especially if you are on a dirty street or road, you should wipe it off and spray some WD 40 on it to remove any water and then re-lube it. The other problem that occurs in chains is that they will stretch over time. You will need a ruler that will gauge how much it has stretched.Park Tool Chain Wear Indicator in order to determine whether or not you need to replace your chain. Every year (Every month with dirty riding, at the very least) you MUST take your chain off your bike and thoroughly clean it with a good solvent and then re-grease it. This is where the MIssing LInk really pays for itself. Other manufacturer's missing link can be very expensive, this is a less expensive alternative.
5Works fine if you have the right toolI put a new KMC Chain on my road bike in June. The link that came with it worked fine as did the one that was on the chain originally. Squeeze them, and they open and close easily. The "new" ones have been seeming redesigned to create a market for the KMC Missing Link closing tool. I had to replace a twisted link in my chain and thought I'd do so with another missing link. I ordered the package of 6. Two strong men and a boy couldn't get the link to close at all using any technique. After nearly swearing off KMC and buying a Shimano chain, I ordered the KMC pliers designed to close the link. Snap. Done. So while the pliers get an A+ I can not recommend carrying the missing link in your repair kit because there is no way you could get it closed without the pliers.
3Great for easy SRAM chain cleaningI love to use these Missing Links with SRAM chains instead of the PowerLock that SRAM provides. These allow for easy removal of the chain from my bike for cleaning without needing to replace the Missing Link. The SRAM products are generally a one-time use and thus new ones would be needed for any chain cleaning (if removed from the bike).I even like to carry an extra Missing Link with a chain tool on my bike in case I, or anyone I am with, runs into chain problems. So far it has saved the day just once, but it is a small price to pay for the extra miles I got in that day!
5Not sure these were genuine KMC product, way way too loose fitI bought a card of these and none of them in the pack worked. I've used the SRAM and other brands before with success. Usually, you have to pull slightly to get a chain quick link to go into place. These were so loose on the chain that you could hear it as it went through the front chainring and rear drivetrain.Just to be sure, I took the links to the local bike shop I use and had them try it on several 10 speed chains. Didn't work on anything: a KMC, a Shimano, nothing. All were loose.Not sure KMC has an issue right now or if a lot of fraudulent products are being sold, but the bike shop also tried their 10 speed KMC links they had in stock.......same problem. Super loose.I'd recommend going with the SRAM quick link or the Sunrace (Suntour?) one instead.Gets one star because it doesn't work at all (the ones I received and the same ones at the local bike shop).
1Easy to install. Easy to uninstall. Chain doesn't break.I have a 10sp Shimano chain on a 2010 Cervelo P2. I broke it down (the chain, not the bike) to finally add a quick link. I first tried two SRAM PowerLinks, and neither would fully snap into place, leaving the links very stiff and causing the chain to jump around on the rear derailleur. Getting them off required pliers. That, to me, defeats the purpose of a quick link.I tried these KMC Missing Links based on some bike forum advice, and was incredibly pleased with how well they snapped into place and came off again with minimal effort.I've not ridden very far with them, but the chain hasn't broken yet. I suppose I'll adjust my review if it does, but until then... 5 stars.
