Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by やっぱアルテグラでしょう。 ギアトレインが10速であれば、チェーンはコレで決まりだと思います。価格的には日本でも同じようなものだと思いますから、あとは送料の問題ですね。チェーンは消耗品ですから、日本でもCRCでも、何かを買うついでに注文しておくと良いと思います。お勧めします。 26 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a chain! It's a just a chain!! It's never let me down. I got it to replace my old 105 chain. Price here is much cheaper than lbs prices. Overall excellent value for a good quality product. When it comes to the end of it's life I'll post how many more miles I got out of it (if any) compared to my the 105 chain 03 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality product This is another great product from Shimano, I have bought this chain to replace the same which has now done almost 5000km. 02 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value and runs smoothly. Its a chain that is very good value and runs smoothly. Had it on the bike for approx 6 months averaging 75 miles a week with no problems. 25 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Come in a plastic bag I am not sure what the chain I ordered is since it came in a non-branded plastic bag. Not the shimano box I see at my local bike shop. 18 September 2014

I just installed this on my bike, but after i placed the guide pin, that link is stiff. how do it get it to loosen up? Also, If i need to take the chain off, can i simply remove a pin with a chain tool and then replace it with the same pin? or that pin now ruined and i'll need a new guide pin?

Answers

Answer: 
By bending the chain 'laterally' at the stiff link is should reduce the stiffness. After a few minutes on the bike; the stiffness should be gone completely.

Generally link pins are reusable but can become damaged when removing making this not possible.

It may be work considering chain connectors which makes breaking and reconnecting the chain easy.

Answer: 
So for question #1, look at the insertion of the guide pin. If it is pushed too far or not far enough the edges of the pin will make the link stiff. Compare it to the other pins and match as required.
Question #2 These pins are single use, when you installed it it came with a rounded guide piece that you had to break off. Without that guide you will never get the pin through all those holes again. Buy a pack of replacement pins for your toolbox.
Every time you remove/replace a chain you weaken it. This is especially true with narrow chains of 10-11 speeds. You can buy removable links that allow you to remove and reattach a chain without the need of a pin.

Answer: 
You may be able to loosen the link up by riding it, however my suggestion is to remove the pin (shimano pins are one time use, the answer to your second question) and I would replace with a master link instead. I have this same chain and use the SRAM powerlink master link with no issue. I really recommend them, any other 10 speed master link should work well to just comes down to preference and availability

Answer: 
cette chaîne semble shimano d'origine il n'y a rien pour indiquer la chaîne est faux?
il est fourni avec une épingle mais vous pourriez acheter un KMC shimano lien de puissance 10 de vitesse pour le fixer, mais vous aurez toujours à enlever quelques liens si vous voulez prendre un TIP, utilisez la broche qu'ils vous donnent et transporter une puissance lien sur la route en cas de la rupture de la chaîne et j'ai utilisé 4 de ce type de chaîne et ont à un moment ou un autre il les rompit.
même pensé je me suis cassé les chaînes que je ne seraient toujours pas utiliser autre chose que je reçois normalement 3000 km à 4000 km de ce type de chaîne. Je suis 114 kg, donc si vous êtes une personne plus léger, vous devriez obtenir beaucoup plus de votre chaîne.

Answers

Answer: 
The 6701 chain has asymetrical inner and outer plates; the inner plate is shaped to optimize shifting in the rear while the outer plate is shaped to optimize shifting in the front.

The 6600 chain does not have the different inner and outer plates.

The 6701 chain is only recommended for doubles. If using a triple, Shimano state that a 6600 chain must be used.

Answers

Answer: 
The 5701, 6701 and 7901 chains utilise a stiffer link than previous chains, so they do not have enough lateral movement to work well on a triple ring setup. Shimano suggest the 5600, 6600 and 7801 chains as their triple compatible options (linked below for your reference)
