Will a 10 speed quick link work on 11 speed?
Yes, SRAM did not change the cable pull ratio when going from 10-speed to 11-speed, so a 10-speed SRAM road rear derailleur will work quite well with an 11-speed SRAM road shifter. And, finally, Shimano and SRAM 11s cogsets and chains are cross-compatible, so no problem with your choices there.
Can you use a 11 speed quick link on a 12 speed chain?
1. SRAM PowerLinks and PowerLocks can be used on Shimano chains as long as both are designed for the same number of speeds (cogs on the cassette). 2. PowerLinks are re-usable; PowerLocks are engineered for single-use and weaken if used repeatedly.
