Chain breaker

Postby mollymoke » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:35 pm

Hi all,
I've been doing a lot of work with chains and wondered if anyone had seen a bench mounted chainbreaker?
I have destroyed a few reasonable quality 'hand tools' and figured if this keeps happening I should have a heavy duty one!

Or any advice on a good quality one?

Never heard of bench mount...

Shimano or Park Tool shop tool would be the go or Park make one with a pliers type action
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

I forked out the coin for the big heavy duty Shimano one and never regretted it. 8 years old now and still on the first pin.

Having said that, I now use joiner links so the chain tool only gets used when installing a new chain. Even a cheap one should be up to that task.
