Can someone explain the ins and outs of Chains? breaking / Rejoining / masterlinks / etc..
The other day I had a stuck link on my multi-speed Trek "Hybrid" and the guy at the LBS just removed it and stuck the chain back together.
But then my SS Fixed Gear has a "track" Chain (KMC Kool Chain) on it that came with a "Master Link".
I shortened the chain but now i'm thinking "what if I want to put on a bigger Chainring" do i need to buy a new chain? can I put add some of the links to the KMC back?
ie When can and when can't you just break and rejoin a chain and what do you need to do it.
Do i need special tools - or special rivet things?
