Difference (from prior major revision) (minor diff)

Changed: 3c3
In a word, I love these chains! After futzing around with Shimano's stupid pin approach to connecting chains, and dealing with the primorial ooze in which the chains are shipped (resulting in the chain collecting dirt immediately), I decided to try a SRAM Powerlink. What a difference! No tools required (except to break the chain to the correct length), and the chain goes on in seconds. Literally. The first time I installed one, it almost installed itself. I was bringing the ends together, and trying to mate them. My hands slipped a bit, and I was ready to curse, until I realized that the PowerLink had connected itself. Sweet!
