I'm having a problem getting the pin I put back into place on my 9 speed chains. I get them back in place then after a while this link seems to get too much stress and it ends up flaring out and the chain falls off.
So, I temporarially put a spare master link in place and I have not have any problems with it. This is on my Mt. bike and I only ride the mt. bike on the trails.
So, my question is what is better putting the pin back in or using the master link when there is a chain problem. or you have to add or take away links?
If getting the pin back in is the solution, what is the best way to get the pin back in and have it function properly?
This is the Shram 9 speed 951, or 971 chain. I can't remember.
