    Does Shimano's IG chain have a master link?

    I have an IG chain (don't know which specific one) and I'm replacing it w/ a SRAM. Does the Shimano have a master link or can I just open it on any link?

    Break that chain anywhere! Shimano chains are assembled with an extra long pin that You push in with a chain tool and then break off the remainder of the pin with pliers.
