So, evening ride tonight, looking forward to my first ride on my new flats, but I don't have much time, so I hit up apex. Being a good boy, I ride all the trails directionally, and am approaching the top when disaster strikes and I snap my chain (too much power )
Figuring I'll practice for the chinless downhill section of the Trestle Enduro, I throw my mutilated chain in my pack with a smile (I had no extra links or chain tool) and set off down the hill.
Much to my dismay, however, I pinch flat right about where Enchanted joins in. After I throw in the spare tube, I'm running late, and start rolling down the hill again. But blame! Another pinch flat!! I patch this one with my last patch... Until (just my luck) I pinch flat a THIRD time and end up having to walk my chainless flat tired bike most of the way down the trail, late for a date and thoroughly frustrated. Needless to say, I went to my lbs and picked up a tubeless kit and a new chain as soon as I got back.
What was your most disastrous ride?
