I have to transfer parts over to a new frame on my son's bike...he's growing like crazy.
His bike has campy 11 speed. Can the chain be removed and re-installed, or do I have to buy a new chain?

I have used KMC chains and links for several years, both 10 and 11-speed. No problems.

Thanks, I'll look into picking up some links.
I haven't had issues with keeping the chains clean on the frames, but have been giving thought to changing cassette sizes in the future, links would make this a non issue (change the chain with the cassette).

FYI the 11 speed links are labeled non-reusable. This means you generally need at least a link opening plier to pry them apart. Yes you can reuse them at your own risk (I would say that most people chose to do so).
