Most people will tell you the rivet link is the best. If its installed correctly it probably is. If the rivets are not joined correctly its more dangerous that the clip link. Another think to consider is if you will be removing your chain in the future. If so use the clip link to make removal and reinstall easier.

I dont race my bikes but I do occasionally drive the crap out of them. I have a clip link on one and a rivet on the other. Since I dont have a rivet tool I will probably use a clip link on the other if I ever need to remove the chain for some reason. I have never had a clip link come off but I have heard second and third hand stories where the link supposedly came off. I have seen the effects of a badly riveted link comeing off though. So as far as Im concerned it is what you make it. Either one put on correctly will work just fine, either one put on poorly, well....you dont want to do that.
