This might seem crazy but in decades of cycling and renewing chains, minus the internet, I never knew about special chain pins to connect up a new chain. I'd used old pins and master links....
Anyway, it turns out I need a cn 6600 chain for my new 10 sp 3x setup. The cn 6701 is 2x only. Another lesson learned. I don't know how I got by!
But what I can't figure out is if I can use a generic Shimano 10sp master link with this cn 6600. Can I? And how do I determine this other than a forum saying yes, or no. I've ordered pins with it anyway, but I'd much prefer a master link.
Thoughts, lessons and corrections?
