    Good chain - beware the single chain pin

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain:

          Chain engineering has changed a bit since I last replaced one. This chain has a right and wrong way to install it. More importantly, be sure you measure chain length carefully before using the single connecting pin! You only get one chance. In my case I had to purchase some additional pins because I did not realize it was a one shot deal and I did not measure carefully the first time.

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain:

          I do a lot of miles for exercise, charity rides, get togethers etc. Weight is not a concern. I just want a chain that will outlast the next guy. I wet oil after every ride and wipe down. I degrease when I start to feel too much grit build up (about every 250 miles). I do it on the bike and rinse with water then dry with a blower before re-oiling. The Shimano permanent pin link makes it not friendly to remove. This chain just started to fail the 0.5mm check on a Parker gauge at 2475 miles. (I have to force the gauge in a bit). So, I will give it another couple of hundred miles then replace. If I get around 2700 miles on a chain??? Yeah.. I cant complain about that. I will be replacing it with a 105 chain just to compare because they are $10 cheaper. In comparison to the KMC chain that came with this bike, it made it to about 1800 miles.

          The chain works really well with ultegra components but you have to change it eyery 2000 to 2400 miles or otherwise you will wipe out you front chain rings in about 7000 miles.It happened to me once.

            Easy to install if you have a chain breaker. The Shimano guide pin works well to couple the chain. Not much else to say!

              Comments about Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain:

              This is the fourth or fifth 6701 chain I've bought. I've been very happy with there durability. I ride 3-5k miles a year and if I take care of it, I can go a little over a year before having to replace it. I live at the beach and the salty air/rain eventually take its toll, no matter how good I clean it. I use a Wipperman quick link so I can take it on and off the bike easily to clean.

                Great chain, quiet and smooth shifting, but wears quickly. It will last most riders an entire season, if cleaned regularly, but check with chain checker frequently (Park tool is my favorite) to prevent excessive wear on your cassette.

                      Comments about Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain:

                      Expensive and difficult to figure out the instructions ... remember that it goes on with the writing (characters on the chain proper) on the outside (facing the crank arm not the seat tube). Also there is a special (extra long) chain pin that is to be used to reattach after you push out the pin that creates the correct chain length ... break off the tapered end which goes in first (I used pliers, attempting to bend it along the chain).
                      Have used chain about 200 miles at this point and am very happy with it. Seems to run quietly and smoothly. Oh, oil it as soon as it is installed. I use what is called 'dry' lubricant and then spin the chain through a dozen rotations and then I coat the whole thing in vasaline to keep road grit out.
