    Shimano 6700 vs 6701 chain?

    I just ordered/received a new 6701 chain thinking it was the newest version of the 6700. On the back of the box it says "For Double Chainring Only". It has 116 links. I have a 105 triple crankset on the bike. Does anyone know why this is only for a double? Is there something differnt about the design of the chain for a double or triple? I know it is a directional chain.

    Thanks!

    There is absolutely nothing different. 116 links just might not be long enough for a triple setup with wide range in the back.

    Thanks operator. Apparently you are correct as I installed the chain and it works great.
