Grr... bloody Shimano chains

Post  Tom on 2007-08-27, 10:15

This is why I usually buy SRAM chains:



Shimano tat. Brand new chain, pin just wouldn't budge, even reversing it out the other way. I should have learnt my lesson last time I tried breaking a Shimano chain and it tore off half of the face of one of the outer links.

Not even a cheap chaintool.

Grr! Mad

Anyone else have these problems?!

Good news is; at least I don't have to decide whether or not to cycle hungover this afternoon. I can't! Smile

Never had that problem. Looks like 'operator error' to me.

Me neither.
Very Happy

I'll use the pin once and if I have to remove then refit the chain I use a power link.

Yep power links are the way forward.

Well worth a quid or two.

Wierdly enough, I tried it again with a different chain tool (the one on a multitool) and the pin slide out like shit off a shovel.

Wondering if maybe the end of the Park tool had 'mushroomed'.

What's that? . . . Did I hear someone mention bad workmen blaming their tools? . . . Wink
