My previous chain snapped weeks ago and only got a new one sorted.
I've cut the chain to the right size, fed it through the derailleurs and onto the bike correctly.
The last step was to use the reinforced Shimano pin to connect the new chain together. Unfortunately the reinforced pin snapped as it was being put into its slot.
My wife was doing it so I'm not 100% sure what happened but she said it snapped very easily and unexpectedly. My only guess is that the chain tool wasn't going straight?
Anyway, the actual link that you'd want to stay in and connected, wasn't far enough in yet so it fell out, the 'snapping' bit is now stuck pertruding out of the chain.
I've never replaced a chain like this before so I'm slightly weary of doing damage. It'll be tricky, but should I be able to use the already snapped pin to connect the chain and hopefully it'll help push out the snappable portion?
Should I attempt to get another reinforced pin instead of attempting the above and start again?
I could attempt to pull out the 'snappable' portion with pliers but again slightly worried about causing damage!
