    I just wanted to take a second and poke fun....

    Of Myself... I just finished putting my hardrock together and went for a 15 mile test ride....everything is going great and I'm at a light and I get the green when I go to power pedal and........SNAP my brand new chain snapped and next thing you know my goods are meeting my top tube. I'm the dumb A$$ who broke the chain in a few spots and put it back together as the directions stated not to do...

    Nothing like a 7 mile walk back of kicking myself every foot for being a dumb ars. Lession " never brake a chain in more then one spot and reuse the old pin"

    Sometimes you can get away with it on a SRAM or KMC, but it isn't really worth the risk of a chain break at the worst time.
