Default Re: Newbie in need of help...

Speaking of chain links, do you really need that master link? Anybody??

When I put mine together (the right way) and took it for a spin, the chain broke and left me to push the bike home. I fixed this by eliminating the master link and using just another link. When I pushed the pins back in place, I tapped the ends of them with a ball peen hammer so they won't ever come out......I never had any chain problem since.

Now I know it's good to have a master link for easier repair, but pushing the pins out of any link is pretty easy, so what's the difference, if any?
Don't feed the bears....
