FS: Omega Ti frameset with top end kit
Has anyone got any tips or handy techniques on how to open a stubborn SRAM power link?

Need zen power on this one. The more you force them the more stubborn they become. All they should need is a very light, opposable push on each link. Clean the chain to clear out the dirt. It really should be easy unless you've damaged the link.

A good spray of GT85 to start with should clear out any grit from the powerlink.
The secret is then to squeeze the plates together slightly, with a slide then to undo them. When you do it, it will seem much easier than you thought!

Needle nose pliers are the ideal tool for this

Thanks for all the tips Folks, it turned out that the gentle "Zen like" approach worked first time, didn't even need any GT85.
Lucky really as I don't own any thin nosed pliers at the moment!!!
Thanks again all - much appreciated
