First off, whether you use clip style or rivet style, they are both master links. When you buy the chain it will probably come with a clip style master link. Every one I have bought did anyway. If you want a rivet style link, your probably going to have to order one. I have had two chains break. Both broke on a clip style master link. I now have the jumbo chain tool that I linked to earlier and use rivet style mast links. Whichever style link you decide to use, I recommend carrying a spare master link or two and maybe a short chunk of chain in your tool bag. (It's a good use for that clip style link that come with the new chain.)

Use a 20 percent off coupon, and get that chain breaker for $13.59.

I always use a clip-style master link, and I haven't had any problems. However, I defer to Walter; the rivet master link should never fail under any circumstances.

I bought the following tool on eBay to help seat the cover link on the master link before I attach the clip. However, this tool will also break chains, and rivet master links.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chain-Breake...c61332&vxp=mtr



This tool is identical to the Motion Pro Chain Breaking and Riveting Tool, part #08-0058, which retails for $94.99. However, you can buy the eBay tool for $30.99, delivered. The eBay tool doesn't come with instructions, but you can use the Motion Pro instructions, which are available in PDF form at the following link.

That's too bad, Red. I hope we don't have as many fires as we did last year.

Clip

Just a reminder, If running a clip, make absolutely sure you pay attention to the rotation of the chain in regards to the "open" end of the clip. You know what I mean!

Brian,
I ran 14/48 for a long time. It seemed like the best compromise after early on trying 15/48 because I ride a bit of backroads to get to the trails. While 15/48 was definitely nicer to the engine on the roads, I preferred the better gear choices of 14/48 offroad. When local inmate bwalsh came up with a 50 tooth rear he wanted to sell, I figured here's my chance to get a tad higher than 14/48 and not have to pound my chain around the tighter front sprocket. I really like the 15/50 gearing best now, it's still great offroad, and makes the road ride just a little more tolerable. If you're only riding offroad, you may want to try what's available in the neighborhood of a 52 or 54.

I've only had a chain break once, and it was just another link, a few links away from the master link. There's no strength difference between either type of link. The potential issue with a clip-type is losing the clip from having it catch just right on something while moving the chain backwards, something I haven't had happen yet, but I prefer the convenience of clip-style. I also have both style tools you posted, motion pro breaker and RK excel kit, plus the one Fritz posted. I find I need to compress the rubber rings in the clip-style to get the plate to clear the slots in the pins in order to slide the clip on. That also keeps a pressure on the clip making it that much more difficult to remove, whether intentionally or unintentionally. The kit has the necessary plates to facilitate this. Excellent advice to carry "a spare master link or two and maybe a short chunk of chain" along with the chain tool. If it hadn't been for one passerby to have a chain tool and a fellow rider to have a spare master link when my chain broke, I would have had to make arrangements to come back for my bike. For carrying on the trail, I choose the smaller breaker and then concern myself with installing the rubber rings once returned home.
