    PC991 hollowpin

    is there a special chain tool needed to remove the pins? or some sort of adapter that fits a standard chain breaker?

    .

    Check out the Sram website as they have Technical manuals in PDF you can download.

    Cheers and good luck.

    I use regular chain breakers to cut to lengh and then everything else is done with the power link, if you manage to break one, only use a new powerlink, do not add a link of the ones removed as the pin will not hold and snap again. Granted powerlinks are quite expensive $4, but if you break a chain on the road, it only takes about a minute to replace.
