Length of a CN-6600 Ultegra 10 Speed chain

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering how long as CN-6600 Ultegra 10 speed chain is, I have to input it into my polar. Previously I wipped the chain off but that had a SRAM joining link (prior to groupset upgrade) and I don't have a new Shimano pin to hand. Not to fussed over 116 or 118 links.

If anyone happens to know how heavy it is (I've read it's 280g) that would be useful to.

Regards,
Max

Count the links. A link is one inch and is a two pin length including inner and outer plates. Chain lengths vary with the size of the bike and components.

The 116 links specified on a new chain are really 116 "half-links", i.e. one inner or outer set of plates so a 116 link chain would be 58" long.

Now that is considerate. I was going to give a smartass answer but am shamed.
