Introduction

In this guide you will learn how to take a chain off a bike using a chain cutting tool. Be careful to not force the pin out incorrectly. If it is difficult to press the pin out, the tool is most likely not aligned up properly. Greasing the threads of the chain cutting tool will make it easier to press out the pin.
