    I just put on my lovely new Wippeman chain and into the ride I f'd it up around the bottom bracket - one of the links is bent. I ordered a Wippeman power link but in the mean time can I stick in a shimano pin?
    thanks, dan

    Just a pin? Probably not.
    You could, however stick in another brand's powerlink assuming it's the correct width.
