    So I have a Shadow Conspiracy Half-link chain, and I like it. No problems yet.

    But isntalling it, and trying to get it to the right length, I had to get really creative (and pretty frustrated) with my compact Park Tools chain tool. so what I'm wondering is..is there a half-link specific chain tool? and if so, what is it, and is it worth it?


    Thanks

    There is a half link specific tool (can't remember the maker), but it costs more than the big park CT-3 which works on half links just fine.

    ^^^ what he said.


    On those mini tools, they can be a PITA on just regular links.
