Could anyone tell me the roller width and pitch of a Shimano 10 speed chain?

Can't seem the find the information anywhere.

Thanks

5.9 mm.

1/2 inch like all bike chains.

Thank you for your reply, if all bike chains are this measurement then why do they have other specifications?

perhaps expand on your question. there can be many other differences beyond the original question.

OP I'm going to give you the benefit of doubt and not just come out and call you a 14 YO troll.

After my initial answer, you asked
if all bike chains are this measurement then why do they have other specifications?
And when I asked you what specific specifications you were asking about, you replied with a link to a picture of a chain. Duh.

Do you want to know the actual dimensions of the rollers, not the chains? Why?

Chains


All bikes have the same distance between teeth on cogs and on chainrings, of course. So all chains are 1/2 inch between roller pins.

Cog sets with different counts, 5 cogs to 12 cogs.
The differences are in the spacing of the gaps between cogs, requiring narrower chains. And small differences in the width of the teeth themselves.
