    KMC PT710-NP Pintle half-link 1/8" chain..

    any opinions? reviews?

    seems to me a bit safer than using just a hairpin held single offset link to pull my rear axle that needed half-inch in.

    plus, they're reputed to last longer, with the load distributed better among half-links, which grip all sprocket teeth at the same time, rather than just half of them (inside links) like full link chains.


    talk amongst yourselves...

    You want to ride a heavy and slow chain, why again?

    if you want to whine about how other riders don't do things the way you want, start another thread.
    honestly, you do this crap way too often...

    If someone asked "what's the best way to cut off my arm?" are you telling me you wouldn't try to talk them out of it?

    how are they slower?

    they also make them with hollow pins, for a slight decrease in overall strength. i'm not that into the idea.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with normal chains, just so you know.

    besides, i'm riding a steamroller, for crying out loud. it's already too heavy ;)


    a few extra ounces are manageable.

    i agree with you; i just need to pull my rear axle in a half-inch, and not only can't find half-links in chrome color, but am cautious about the hairpin held link itself.

    I bought one but it was too short. Sucks that it come in a 98 link and I needed like 2-3 more half links.

    It looks pretty cool to me. I think that the Shadow Conspiracy chain is stronger, though I've read that KMc half link chains "stretch" faster but I wanted to put it to the test and I just may with the help of some full links off my Izumi chain I just put on.
