Thanks. Try the pliers trick.
great vid man ! why can’t i take my sram link apart???
You are misrepresenting the SRAM by implying it can only be removed w/ a tool. I remove my SRAM link with just my fingers and I don’t think I have special powers. Do you own stock in Wippermann?
While this is true, using pliers as shown makes the job much easier, especially where links have been in place for some time and/or the chain is dirty. In such cases, fiddling about pushing the chain together to free up the link can take an inordinate amount of time.
Can you use a chain link tool to remove any chain even if it has a one of those links
SRAM links will come apart w/out tools. There are videos on YT showing how.
wats that at the begging of the vid
Good video, but you should show people what to do if the pin comes all the way out, as I think this is a common problem and this actually just happened to me. I put the links back together, placed it on a hard surface, held the pin with some long nosed pliers and used a small hammer just to knock it into the links to start it off. Worked a treat for me.
thanks. this vid really helped!
Glad it helped. I have a video on removing cassettes and freewheels. Check my channel.
Thank you for this video, very easy to understand.
Going to change the rear gear, have you any videos on how to to that. :=)
Thanx now I know witch chain to get the
thank you so much ^^
That’s a Park Tool #CT-5. More info at the link under the video. Cheers!
Good one, huh? I used to curse the things every time until I discovered that trick.
Very nice, clear video; thank you! What’s the brand name of the chain tool you’re using?
Thanks I have been trying to get it off with my hands for the last hour. using the pliers was much easier!
I did exactly the same thing… REALLY ANNOYING! Did you have any luck on getting it back in?
You’re welcome. Glad you got it sorted out.
Useful video, especially for SRAM link that I was not sure how to undo! They won’t undo by hand and I was going to carefully use pliers, just as this video confirmed. Thanks for the confirmation.
Very helpful,thanks =)
