Replacement Pins for Shimano 10-speed chain (5 Pack)
Way back in the days of yore, it used to be a common ritual for the most exacting of road riders to regularly remove their chain and lovingly bathe it in gasoline before dropping it into a boiling cauldron of paraffin wax for the ultimate clean and lube job.
Good thing we live in the future and not back in the realm of yore. Maintenance is much, much easier and less time consuming today. A little degreaser, some lube, and you're good to go. Couple that with the fact that today's modern chains should be replaced every 2,000 miles or so and there's really no reason to remove a chain other than to replace it.
But, exceptions do happen and that's why Shimano offers replacement pins. These pins are specific to Shimano 10 speed chains only. We can't stress enough that they are not compatible with any other chain and you don't want to attempt to reinstall a used chain pin.
There are five in a pack so you'll have a couple for the toolbox; a couple to lose and one to keep in your seat bag should disaster ever strike and you're out of cell phone range to call a cab.
- Designed for Shimano 10-speed chains only.
- 5 pins included.
