I just set up a new 10 speed drivetrain and used the CN-HG94 chain. I want to buy some spare connecting pins, but I haven't been able to find anything online for the HG94, just for Ultegra or Dura-Ace chains. Are the pins the same for the Shimano road and MTB chains?

Thanks.

I know the MTB and road chains are different, but I wouldn't be surprised if they use the same connecting pin. I just haven't been able to confirm this. All the places I've found the pins online always mention the Ultegra or Dura-Ace part numbers, but never the HG94.

Luckily I won't need to worry about having a spare pin until the snowpack melts here in CT - probably early July sometime. :nonod:

# For Shimano HyperGlide (HG/HG-X) and InterGlide (IG) chains

# New generation 10-speed road (7901/7900/7801, 6701/6700/6600,5701/5600) and mountain (M980, HG94/74) chains use a permanent three-groove/guide connector pin

# 1st generation 10-speed (7800) chains required a single-groove/guide connector pin but are no longer available and should be replaced with a complete, new-gen chain

It's strange that the Shimano Technical Instructions for the HG94 and the instructions that come with the CN6600 for my road bike both point to either the 2 or 3 groove pin as correct. I've been using the 2 groove in the 6600 for several years.
