Is a PowerLink compatiable with the PC-1 chain?
Is the Snap link that comes with the chain removeable?

what I know

I use a PC-1 chain and love it.... now then concerning your question....
I'm not super familure with the "power link"... I know that the chain is a fattie and that 8/9 speed "links" won't work on it. This incudes some of the sram master links. However, I've found you can get some crazy 3 piece "links" that work (the BMX style)... so yeah...

in summary the PC-1 is a fattie 1/2 x 1/8 in chain as compaired to most 8/9speed chains which are only 1/2x 3/32... different widths = not compatible master links...

hope this helps

not compatible with powerlink

PC-1 is not compatible with a powerlink; it's too wide. some PC-1's come with a traditional masterlink which is easy to remove. others come with a snap link thingie which is removable but harder to remove than either a powerlink or a masterlink.
