Master link on a Shimano chain
I've recently purchased a Shimano chain (8 speed, not installed on the bike yet), and have wanted to install a master link on it due to the fact that apparently, a special pin is required to un-break the chain after every time you break it; installing the chain correctly the first time around seems hard enough, I can't imagine following the process through a few times more
. I've looked through Amazon (ordering there since i'm picking up a few other things, figured why not get something else there), but I can't find anything other than dimensions on the "master links" there; what size would be compatible with a shimano 8 speed chain? Is it even advisable to put a master link onto a shimano chain?
Thanks in advance
