Top Features of the Shimano Ultegra 6701 10 Speed Chain (116 Links)
- Directional design to optimise shifting under load
- 5.88 mm chain width optimised for 10-speed Super Narrow HG drivetrains
- Weight: 267g
Chain uses a directional design with specifically shaped inner and outer plates to optimise shifting over the chainset and cassette.
Outer plate design has been developed to reduce the chance of chain suck & the inner plate has been developed for better contact with gears providing smoother shifting under high load, giving efficient pedaling, increased rigidity and near silent running.
A bicycle chain is a 'roller chain' that has the task of transferring power from the cranks to the rear wheel of the bike thus propelling it. Most bicycle chains are made from alloy steel, but some are chrome plated or stainless steel to prevent rust, or simply for good looks. Chains will vary in width depending on the amount of gears you have, most are 3/32 inch for use with geared systems and then come in 'speeds' which needs to matched to the cassette, ie a 10 speed cassette will need a 10 speed chain and so on. Track bikes or single speeds often run 1/8 inch rings so will need a 1/8 inch chain as well, these will have larger plates to aid stopping on a fixed wheel, which can add extra stress to a chain.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
You may find however that you need to replace your cassette with your chain. Depends how worn the old chain was/ how well you looked after it.
When you stick your new chain on, if it slips a lot then you'll need a new cassette.
You can also buy clip chain links to use with this chain, however you'll need to find ones that are compatible with Shimano directional chains.
im due to ride 100miles soon and am doing 100miles a week training.
would feel better knowing i have a new chain on bike when so far from home lol
will this chain fit my bike?
is this chain any good tho?
or would i be better buying a more expensive one?
if so what one?
How old is your current chain? If old you will need a new cassette too.
Personally fine the Dura-Ace CN7800 a nicer chain and quieter.
Can these be ordered through you? Don't really want to use two quick links on one chain.
You then take this chain length and back off/add 2 links before cutting to ensure the rear mech is not overstretched.
It is never advised to actually add links to a chain.
sowill fit 10 speed chain
Unfortunately groupsets do work better when not mashed together, I know the cranks are pricey but I'd say save up a bit more and complete it, if not for aesthetics then for peace of mind. You don't want things wearing oddly.
