- urgent chain splitting advice pls!!!!!!
ok so bought a park chain splitter and need to split the chain on a bike in the shed.my worry is the bike is a cheapo jap mtb and the links on the chain,well the pins look like they are sort of domed over? the links on my full sus which has a shimano hg73, the links on that are sort of flush and i would expect they will push out no problem.
so can i push the domed head ones out?there is no power link so how are these jointed/split???Posted 8 years ago

<<Just push the pin out far enough to break the chain, then you should be able to reverse the tool round and push the pin back in again… >>
though this does not work on sram chains
I've always done it on Shimano, Sram etc. chains without a problem
yer works fine on shimano chains(using their special pin), but really should not rejoin sram 9 speeds by putting the std pins back in – but if it has worked for you good luck to you.Posted 8 years ago
No "Shimano special pin" just the standard one & the standard SRAM one, KMC etc. Why should I not really be re-joining these chains? So Shimano can charge me £2 for a special one? Have not had a chain breakage for 10yrs – racing "4hr, 12hr XC etc.
I must be just lucky 😀Posted 8 years ago
