    pins for new Dynasys XTR 980 chain

    Does the new XTR 980 chain use the same pins as the previous Shimano Dura Ace CN7701 chain? I'm getting a new Santa Cruz with this set up and want to have a spare in my pack. Thanks.

    according to Universal Cycle website

    Shimano Chain 10 Spd Pins

    * For Shimano HyperGlide (HG/HG-X) and InterGlide (IG) chains

    * New generation 10-speed road (7901/7900/7801, 6701/6700/6600,5701/5600) and mountain (M980, HG94/74) chains use a permanent three-groove/guide connector pin

    * 1st generation 10-speed (7800) chains required a single-groove/guide connector pin but are no longer available and should be replaced with a complete, new-gen chain

    The pin that is pictured isn't the multi-groove unit mentioned, it looks like the 8 speed chain pin.

    They don't list a pin part number in the XTR chain instructions, but they do show the 2 and 3 groove pins that look identical to the CN-6600 10 speed road chains, and the CN-6700 chain uses a 2 groove pin.
