Shimano11-Speed Chain Pins

Calm down and count to 11.

Juggling a chain pin and a chain tool while keeping the two separate ends of the chain together often results in the pin falling under the work bench, couch, or desk. At this point, the pin has effectively melted into the ether, and the final step of your overhaul has come to naught. We've all been there, and our advice is to take a deep breath, count to 11, and calmly retrieve a replacement from this here pack of Shimano 11-Speed Chain Pins.

Never hurts to have a spare!

You never know what can happen on the road or trail so it's always nice to have spare chain pins around.

Always a must have when using Shimano chains. I always like to have a 3-pack on hand for builds and working on other peoples bikes.

A Must Have!

    These things are a time saver. It's worth the extra few bucks to have these on hand rather than trying to re-use an old pin while on the side of a trail. Plus, re-using pins cause a weak point in the chain the is likely to break later. I know, it's happened to me. Twice.

    Great to have a few of these in case of an emergency.

    good to keep in the tool/riding pack

    If you run a 1x11 shimano chain you should get a pack of these and a spare link or 2 in the tool box or riding pack, the worst thing is to get stuck in the backcountry without a chain.
