    Quick link for NOS 6.2 mm Campagnolo 10 sp chain

    I still have one of these left and had been using Wipperman quick links on the old ones but they're all gone- replaced or sold off on bikes. Anything out there that's likely to work?

    If your question is about the 10sp links, Wipperman/Connex/KMX (?) still make them for 11-10-9-8 etc. speed chains even though it may not be the most current technology. I have 11, 10 and 9 speed and have always been able to get chains and connector links. Your shop shouldn't have an issue ordering them.

    Thanks for your post. Sorry, I didn't word my question clearly. Today's 10 speed chains are narrower than the first generation which is what I have. Now they are around 5.9 mm (e.g. Campagnolo- 5.9; KMC 5.88) so the "quick links" available these days are for those chain widths. I guess the question should have been will a link designed for a 5.88-5.9 chain work on a 6.2 mm chain.

    I believe the answer to that question is - no.

    I suggest you make an appeal for an old link here. People will have them lying around.

    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

    Measure the width across the inner plates, at the pin hole. I might be able to help. You must use a micrometer or calipers for accuracy.

    That's very kind of you! You know, I rummaged through my tool kit and 2 boxes of spares and was able to come up with some old Wippermann ones that should do the trick. Thanks for the offer to help me out- looks like I'm good to use that older 6.2 mm chain.

    As long as the link has a side clearance in the .004-.008 inch range, you should be OK. Too tight a fit can be a problem. I looked up some old info that I have. The original Campy 10 chain measures about .155 inch and the newer UN chain measures .145 across the inner plates.

    Without a doubt the most knowledgable person here.

    Plus a host of old bikes too many to list.
