Am I a dunce or is there some secret to opening a KMC chain with a so called "missing link" or whatever?
This is theoretically an 8 speed chain and probably one of the lower end chains. Has not really been used but I'm changing drive trains and thought it was supposed to be easy to open like the Wippermann chains. Does anyone have the secret to opening them or are they just meant to be an easy way to connect the chain and not really meant to be easy off and easy on. I talked to a mechanic at REI who says he hasn't figured out how to open them either and just uses a chain tool. Any help?
