If you just mean one link, than this is it. If you mean all half links, I've never seen one.

No, that won't fit a Wippermann. I've never seen one, but heard a few people talking about it. Idk if they ever actually made one or not, to be honest.

I didn't see that. Idk then. I think I'll order one to see, since I need one as well. It looks too small. Idk though.

I have the same issue. I also destroyed my shadow chain breaker on this thing trying to dial it in. My dropouts are short, so if I remove a link, it's too short, and right now, it's at the end of my dropouts. It has stretched a little though, but it took a bit of riding to see it. Let me know what you find out though, for sure. I love this chain, just want to be more dialed.

If you click on the one that says "Gusset Slink Half link 3/32" it looks similar to a wippermann style.

Gusset is a UK company and their Chains are very common here. There Half-Link Chains look and perform like any other Half-Link Chain, so I don't think it would work.

empire said theyve never installed that half link on that chain, but it looks like it should work. ordered one this morning, should have it in 2-3 days so when it gets in ill report back here and let you know if it works. fingers crossed!

A 3/32 chain is really narrow. It won't even fit over the teeth of the thicker aluminum sprockets. I believe it's for racing.

the superstar half link is wide enough to fit over the links, but the holes for the pins are too small =/

That sucks dude, I thought it would work. No word from connex? Try superstar maybe? There has to be a solution.

Which Wippermann chain? There's a lot of half links that will fit their more normal sized chains, but I don't know of any to fit the 1G8 (the super beefy chain they make)
