Master pin protuding in Shimano 10 spd chain
As the title states, the master pin (the one pin Shimano says not to touch) in a Shimano Ultegra 10 spd chain is protruding to one side, so much so the other side is flush, if not slightly recessed. This can't be good. Should I give it a nudge with a chain tool or is this chain toast? My other option is to get rid of the offending link and replace with backup links I have laying around along with the appropriate replacement pins.
