10 speed chain with 9 speed quick link
As usual will I die?
I’ve just upgraded to 10 speed but waiting for the new 10 speed quicklink to arrive as I mangled the chain with a worn out chain tool so just used a spare 9 speed..
The chain turns and goes round ok but will I do damage to the cassette running it like this for 1 ride?Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
also interested, I’ve got a load of new 10 speed bits to go on, including a Shimano Chain (probably not a wise choice) I got a KMC 10spd quick link as the SRAM ones are apparently non-reusable?
But I also have quite a few 9 speed SRAM quick links still, as I’ve now got a couple of TT chainrings to choose from it might be handy to have a short section of chain to “Splice” when using the bigger ring, so I’m not using a slacker chain with the smaller ring… Anyone else do this?Posted 3 years agoscotroutesSubscriber
They work just fine. I discovered this after breaking a link plate on a ride with my (Shimano 10-speed) Amazon and only finding a SRAM 9-speed link in my little bag of spares. It’s been on ever since (a couple of thousand miles later) with no problems whatsoever.Posted 3 years agogonzyMember
i’m surprised you managed to get it to fit. i tried the same when i did my upgrade and couldnt get the link to fit.
i cant say its going to do your chain any good and i’d expect it to be an absolute PITA to remove
EDIT: i just realized when i was trying to fit a 9sp link it was to a 8sp chain…obviously wont go on!!
and i also had problems sticking a 10sp SRAM link to a 10sp SLX chain… 😳
i’ll get my coat…..Posted 3 years ago
