Back in the day, I used a simple tool to pop out a rivet and break the chain for cleaning... later I got a bit more sophisticated and put in a master link.
Now my son has a new bike with fancy chain that has a reinforced rivet???
I am not sure I can use my old chain tool to take this apart (for cleaning, to replace a derailuer, etc) and it appears as though I need to buy a new special rivet to replace the the one I would pop out.
Can anyone give me the skinny on this?
I did find this... http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830611014.pdf
But I still am not sure of the right way to do things. And heaven forbid, do I need a new part every time I want to clean the chain?
