I've got those on the 'yellow bike' & the Expede 1.0 Cross bike, they certainly help when cleaning/lubing them (& are strong too)

My friend Tall Paul and I used Sedisport gold chains on our TT bikes. Just to finish them off, we made up chainstay protectors from gold Fablon - did look great, though I say so myself.

I always take a pop-in link (Sigma) but no tool. If the chain breaks, I'd be able to get the outside link off without one by flexing it and then just pop the Sigma one in. Only ever happened one.

All my chains are fitted without a pop-in link from new.
