Changed a chain for the first time and what fun would it be without problems?
Here's the deal -
Brand new Campy Record 10s ultra narrow chain. Wipperman quick link. Problem is there are two stiff links. I've been riding about 3 years, always brought in my bike for maintenance but I'm figuring it all out now. Of course I've searched online, I've tried the bend back and forth trick but that didn't work. I'm hesitant to do anything with the chain tool as these links are NOT on a joining pin (again, using the Wipperman link).
Both links look like this:
And the bike is experiencing symptoms like what's described here, under skipping:
I'm pretty sure that I'm diagnosing the problem correctly, but I don't want to go messing with an expensive chain and risk failure. Am I just being too cautious? Will moving the pins a little mess things up beyond repair?
Thanks for all the help!
