  1. Just picked up a new sram pc99 hollow pin chain for my merlin, double Dura ace 9 sp. After looking
    over the service installation directions they mentioned the pc 89r hollow pin & suggested the pc99
    hollwo pin is for mountain bikes. Should I have gotten that one instead or does it matter? I
    replaced my chain in April 02 with a shimano chain so its probably not quite due yet.

    I also have a Cannondale road bike with a triple, Ultegra 9 speed that really needs a new chain. If
    the pc 89r hollow pin is better suited for the merlin can I use the pc 99hollow pin on my
    Cannondale?

    Thanks,

    Barbara L

    doesn't matter, marketing mostly. There really is no difference between 'road' and 'MTB' chains,
    just match the chain to the cogs-8->8, 9->9, etc.

    But next time, get a PC-59, As good as the others, less money.
