Anyone Here Running 1x With a Connex Quick Link?

Just as the title states. Curious to hear your experience. Any noise from the quick link or chain retention issues?

WTB: TriRig Omega SV (not x). PM me if you have one :)

Running Connex on 2x gearing for years on Shimano & SRAM chains, zero issues.

Are you just using the quick link or a complete Connex chain?


If you use a SRAM 1x front chainring with a Connex chain it's very noisy due to the extra chamfer on the 1x teeth, so I wouldn't say it's compatible

Yes. KMC Chain with Connex Link & SRAM Narrow-Wide Chainring on a P2M. Otherwise Shimano Ui2 Drivetrain. No issues with noise or Chain retention.

I’ll double check but I believe that’s the quick link I use with my 1x and no issues with extra noise for me.

Just the quick link. Looking to set up my Power2Max crank with a 1x chainring, run a Shimano Dura Ace chain, Shimano 11-32 cassette, and an XTR Di2 rear derailleur.

Yep. Connex 10spd link on SRAM chain on CX bike, single rotor ring, no issues. 2x with both SRAM and connex chains on tri bike, no issues.

Any run that doesn't include pooping in someone's front yard is a win.
