    Need help from chain gurus (connex link+ record UN and shimano chain)

    Hello All,
    I need some quick help regarding a chain dilemma. I have a Wipperman 10S1 link that states on the packaging (6.2 mm) that it's 10 speed compatible. It was purchased at Performance with the intent of connecting a Record Ultra Narrow chain.

    My dilemma is in regards to compatibility because in the archives it appears that Wipperman used to make (or is currently making?) a 6.05mm connex link. Will the 6.2 have too much lateral play? If so I have an Ultegra 10 speed chain that I believe can use the Connex 10S1 (6.2mm) link based on the archives.

    Any help would be very much appreciated since this is the last piece I need to finish to ride my newly built bike.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dan

    The Connex 10S1 is the CORRECT quick link to use with a Campy UN chain.

    Awiner,
    Thanks for the help. Looks like I am ready to go then on my maiden voyage tomorrow. After reading the archives, some of the posts were kind of scary (ie. chain link snapping during a sprint).
