|Freezing link on a Permalink chain||mike mcmahon|

|I've been having a recurring problem with a freezing link on a brand-new 10-speed Permalink chain. The link right next to the Permalink occasionally freezes up causing great annoyance in the middle of otherwise enjoyable rides. I've tried all the usual fixes: manipulating the offending link in all directions, up and down, side to side, etc. Nothing seems to work. Two questions: 1) is this a particular problem with C 10-speed chains and 2) can a regular chain tool be used with the non-Permalink to remove and install it in an effort to loosen it? Any suggestions (other than getting rid of the Campy gear)?
