How do you take off a bike chain without quick link?

Do all bike chains have a Masterlink?

Do all bike chains have a master link? Nope, not all chains have master links. If your bicycle has derailleurs, it means it’s unlikely that your bike’s chain will have a master link.

Do I need to shorten my bike chain?

You will probably have to remove a few links unless the chain was too short before. As long as there is minimal tension on the chain in the little/little combo, and the chain does not rub on the RD cage, then the chain does not need to be shorter.
