Shimano Chain Pins 7/8 Speed

One of these Shimano chain pins, with its breakaway pilot pin, is the easy and the only recommended means of joining most Shimano chains.

  • New Shimano chains come supplied ready to join.
  • You'll only require a new pin should you ever have to re-join a Shimano chain.
  • You will also need a chain tool to install the pin.

History
Hyperglide chain pins were Shimano's solution to the once fairly common problem of traditional bicycle chains breaking if not installed correctly. A Hyperglide pin makes it so much easier to join a new chain properly without risk of bending the side plate, you can now fit a chain and forget about it for the full length of its useful life. However, you should never say never and there is no harm in carrying a spare pin, especially on longer rides. That way, if a freak incident occurs and one of your party's Shimano chains does break, you'll have the means to offer a quick fix, and you will be deemed a super hero.
