I just ordered a new KMC X10SL Ti 10 Speed chain for my bike. And I am wondering if I should use a master link or not.
In the past I have had much trouble with them. I used to use them on my 9 speed mountain bike, and the master link would fall of often. It turned out that how the suspension compressed it pushed the chain backwards and the master link would pop out.
Now I'm changing the chain on my road bike for the first time. It's 10 speed. And it doesn't have any suspension. Should I use a master link, or not?
My bike is a Scott CR1, it's their entry line carbon bike. I ride it about 150mi/week. A am concerned that using a master link on a chain like the one I ordered will be a problem because it may wear faster then the rest of the chain. Is this true? Or am I just paranoid?
