Regarding chain removal: I used a chain tool to disconnect my chain at a random link. Later, I noticed that I had one link that looked different from the others (different in color and design). Is this the link that was designed for removal and thus am I an idiot for doing what I did?
Regarding chain reinstallation: Putting the chain back together was time-consuming and frustrating. I think I spent 45 minutes trying to align that pin correctly. When I did get the pin back in, the section of chain that pivots around that pin is now very stiff, even after oiling. When it goes through the deraileur and other gears, it is a little noticable since it won't bend. Have I permanently screwed up my chain?
