    ... I have a cycling related thingy to tell you.

    On my way back from a meeting in Leicester I was peddling up a short, but steep(ish), hill when all of a sudden my chain snaps!

    As I am sure you are aware, this sort of thing doesn't happen very often, thank goodness.

    OK, thats it. Just thought I'd mention it, or would you rather I rant on and on about stupid antics regarding motorists?

    Thought not! ;)

    Did you suddenly achieve a really high cadence, and how far did you get?:biggrin:
  6. That happened to me once on the way to work. I very nearly fell off. Because I'm clever, I managed to repair it by removing a couple of links at the roadside. Have a nice cuppa LOTT:biggrin:

    Happened to me last week!!! Following a lycra clad lovely lady so i lost sight of her :biggrin:

    And no, there was no chance of me fixing my chain so had to take that bike home and was late for work.

    Can i have a cup of tea, strong with milk, no sugar, to cheer me up please.

    LOTT, a refreshing change for your postings. Keep up the good work. I hope to hear of an LBS dealing and/ or the tribulations of buying a replacement part of tinternet shortly.
