    Trying to break a chain !!!

    Ok so I just got my new bike parts in and realized that I don't have a chain tool.....to make a very long story short I cannot move my wheel or crank and need to take the chain off to replace a whole bunch of parts....anyone got an idea of how to do so, without a chain tool....I don't have a hack saw !!!

    I had one, but it busted to chain tool becauase the tension on the chain was soooo much because of a broken derailleur hanger...and the chain. and hub and wheel....long story....anyway, I ended but using a blow torch to cut through it....very excessive, but fun as hell.

    you were not able to take the chain off the crank chain ring? that would have given you more slack... anyhow chain link remover tools are very handy, in fact I have two
