    Broken part or jokes on me?

    When taking apart me RF turbine crank today on my Knolly Endorphin this little seemed to of fallen out of the inside of the spindle





    The threads are reverse and I donít ever remember seeing something like this when I built it. I wouldnít be surprised if a riding buddy threw this in there to makes some noise as a joke. Just like when my dad put 5+ pounds of lead fishing weights in my frame years ago.

    I have no idea what that is (kinda looks like a pedal pin), but sounds like you have some awesome friends and family.

    Somewhere on my ride I broke my shimano clipless pedal. That bolt is the tensioning bolt for the cleats. Took my a while to find where it came from.

    Years ago I was helping a friend with his bike and we dropped a washer. The bike was sitting on his gravel path! We spent feckin' ages looking for that washer and couldn't find it. About to give up it caught my eye...

    The tiny washer has hooked around a tooth on the big chainring!!! What are the chances?
