I just got a new chain form Phattire.com and they sent it in plastic bag (not the original Shimano box) and without the little guide-in pins with the break off nib thingy.
It just had a regular pin started in the hole of one of the outer plates. When I pressed that pin in, the opposite hole apparently wasn't lined up exactly and it kinda flared the hole and bent the plate out a bit. A pair of channel locks straigtened things out pretty well .... but I don't know if I can trust it now. What do you think? Should I just remove one more link and try again? Call Phattire or shimano and get me some of those guide-in break off starter pins? or What?
