I just bought a new cassette and SRAM 9-speed PC 971 chain. On the outside of the package a power lock is pictured. However, inside the package only one half of the power lock was included. There must have been an error in packaging at the plant.
Can I install this chain by removing one of the end links, and use my chain tool to connect the two ends? I will need to re-use the pin that I had to pop to remove one of the end links. I bought this chain on line from Sports Basement. All those stores are in California and I am in New Hampshire so a quick fix is not possible.
Has anyone ever had something like this happen?
