These are a must have in your pack.
For some reason I have had better luck with Shimano chains. Maybe a fluke; but, same trails same bike... switched to Shimano and the breaks stopped. Even still, I use a Sram quick link from the beginning when sizing and installing. I always keep a spare in the pack. More often than not, the spare goes to a friend or other stranded biker on the trail. I will always carry one of these and recommend to all bikers. Quick, easy, and strong.
