My chain broke recently. I fixed it by taking out a link with a chain break tool. Now the it slips when I am in my smallest gear on the cassette. I cannot find the stiff link in my chain and think I should replace it. What type of chain do I have to use. One designed for Shimano? Attached is a picture of my cassette if that helps determine what type of chain I need.enter image description here

  • The main thing you have to match is the chain width, which is determined by the number of rear cogs -- the more cogs, the narrower the chain. Commented Mar 16, 2015 at 2:52
