I have 110' of Rohn 55 sitting on a pier pin. It is a nice install. As Steve
said, it takes only  a few minutes to drill out the hole for the pin. I see
no need to epoxy it into the hole, it is not going anywhere.

I think I would epoxy the pier pin in the hole, or seal it some
other way, just to keep out the water.  The water that might
enter around the pier pin could freeze and over time start
to damage the concrete.  And there is potential for rust on
the pier pin which could also damage the pier pin itself if it
spends a lot of time sitting in a water-filled hole.

But then I am a belt and suspenders guy!
