i actually don't own a ton of tools (which is something that i need to rectify). i have what i need to get by, and then a few things that i only use every so often, like cone wrenches, a crank puller, some headset wrenches, and a pedal wrench...but i work in a shop that has breakers for 1/8", 3/16", 3/32" in a few different styles and brands...so i have access to the breaker...and if i wanted to, i could buy one, but up until now, i haven't had any use for it. i do have a breaker that'll fit a 1/8" and 3/32", and one that is supposedly made especially to break IG and HG shimano chains, but i haven't had any difficulty with the standard breaker that i have.
i'm actually not going to pick up that chain after all. kinda sucks for the shop, but it's definitely overkill for a track bike (and no, it won't wear as fast as a normal chain, because the pins, side plates, link plates, and rollers are all oversized, it'll pretty much kill the soft aluminum BMX chainring that i have on there though), and i don't want to buy a new sprocket and freewheel for my BMX, as that's like, $70 on a bike that's just fine now with a 1/8" chain and a bashguard, that i don't ride nearly as much as i should.
gonna pick up one of those wipperman chains when i find a new chainring and cog.
