Can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative to the Campy 11s chain tool?

Pedros announced a tool more than a year ago, but it never made it to market (yet).

Park have a tool that does just the penning of the 11 speed pin, not sure on price, $40-60 I guess.

I ended up just buying the 11 speed tool because I figured I could use it on my 10 speed chains as well. WRONG. It's made so well, that a 10 speed chain will not fit in it.

If you live in Brisbane, you can borrow it for $5 a pop. :D

The Park CT-11 just peens the rivet after installation, and you need another tool to break the chain.

Ice Toolz make a tool as well, but I am not sure what it does or does not do, or how well it works. Nice and cheap though, even in Australia.

KMC now make an 11-speed chain, which comes with a KMC quick link, which I gather is not reusable. The links are available to be used by themselves but I don't know how well they will go with a Campag chain. You might be stuck with the KMC one, but KMC make nice chains, the 9-speed jobbie I just put on my MTB is a pearler shifting and noise wise (don't know about longevity yet).

PS, if you buy the Ice Toolz one, let us know how well it does the job.

Thread Resurrection Alert!!!

No repsonse on this topic. Is the Lezyne tool any good? $25 from CRC at the moment - big difference in price to the Campagnolo one.

Hi,
I bought the Lezyne 11 speed chain tool and it works just fine.

I use a campagnolo 10 sp chain breaker for 11speed chains and another adjustable chain tool to peen the joining pin.
After seeing the price of the CT-UN300 tool on wiggle I'll order one as that is $130 cheaper than the whole sale price for them in Aus
