    M800 with Sedis SC-CH-5 Chain

    Hi,

    My M800 has what the catalog describes as a Sedis SC-CH-5 chain.

    I'm looking for replacement pins so I can break the chain. Google searched don't yield any information.

    Does anyone know if pins or master links are available for this particular chain.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Regards

    Sedis is now Sram so a Sram master link should work ... but that chain might be very old and might need to be replaced anyway
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    Thanks for that information.

    The chain is a low mileage chain. It likely has less than 500 miles total. The bike sat for a long time. I just cleaned the chain with a Finishline Chain Cleaner and I can detect some grit still in the chain. I want to do a more thorough cleaning, so I want to remove the chain.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Regards

    A new Sram PG850 (fit's 6, 7 and 8 speed) will cost less than $20 easily, a new 8 speed quick link on it;s own will run north of $10.

    No reconnect, 2 stage pins are available, that's a Shimano thing.

    Time being money? just buy a new chain, it'll come with a quick link, and you'll never have to deal with this issue again.

    Or, do the old push it out most of the way and carefully reconnect routine, should be fine if you're good about pin poke being even on both sides. And (just going out on a limb here) if it's that old, and has that low miles on it, chances are, you aren't riding it that hard anyway, so chances of failure are minimal.....
