Bike shop in Sydney that has KMC 11 speed quick links

Postby humanbeing » Fri Oct 05, 2012 1:07 pm

As the topic says, does anyone know any shops that stock these for a last minute purchase?
Inner west, CBD or East would be preferable.

They deliver to Aus, normally 5-10 days. Free shipping on orders over GBP50.00 (about $75.00) so you might want to think about one or two additional items you may 'need'...

And ordinarily I would go this route however I was hoping to be building a bike on the weekend and looking for an immediate fix if the Campagnolo connecting pin fails (which has happened before) hence the urgency.
BTW City Bike Depot and Bike Depot Enmore do not stock 11 speed missing links.

Yes I am impatient.
Just have to be meticulous with the Campagnolo pin and there won't be any dramas.
Nice to have a back up plan and a quick link in your back pocket on the road just in case.
PS Velosophy and Stanmore Cycles don't stock missing links either.
Bob at Stanmore Cycles has Campagnolo pins and the Campagnolo chain tool so if I get in trouble there's my fix. I'm a cheapskate with the Lezyne 11 speed tool.
He knows his Campagnolo and doesn't recommend KMC missing links or chains.
Interesting :?:

I've happily been using KMC chains on my (10 speed) Chorus setup without problems for quite a few years now without any issues, so I'd take the bike shop comments with a pinch of salt.

Likewise - I've used KMC chains on a Shimano 10 speed and quick links on 10 and 11 speed without issue.
Stanmore Cycles is a Campagnolo shop so I suspect they're just steering me to the genuine parts.
Nothing beats a Campagnolo chain anyway, those just last. :D
