  • IMO it shouldn’t do that even if the chain is dry, so doubt it’s Squirt causing that. You sure the link is set correctly, not worn/bent/the wrong way around?

  • It's all brand new but the first time I used the Connex one instead of KMC so maybe I installed it wrong.

  • I’d also add that you need to use quite a lot of squirt on first application. Maybe 2 or three full goes for it to penetrate.

  • Yep, it's upside down. Oddly, I bought a Connex link for this exact purpose too (regular removal of chain for waxing) and I could not get it to run smoothly through my derailleur either. Mine's 11spd, no idea why, so I sacked it off and just replace with KMC quicklinks every time they start to feel a bit less solid
