    Thanks Maad!

    I was minutes from summiting Windgate, at record time... when my chain broke. Even though I *thought* I had a complete pack with everything I reasonably need - I didn't have a piece of chain, only master links. When my chain broke I needed a few pieces of chain to get it fixed. I was about ready to pack up and coast down windgate and push the bike back to the car.

    Maadjurguer comes rolling along, I think with Chollaball and presto change he had a section of chain he gladly gave me to help.

    Thanks dude! Salvaged my ride.



    Be cool people, it pays dividends.

    That chain looks like a snake in for the kill...nice meeting you. Did you finish what you had planned, or did you audible and just do the double? Let us know how well the 8spd meshed with the 9spd....

    Yes the 9spd links worked great with the 8spd chain.

    I only cut off the extra Dixie Mine to Sonoran and up Sonoran section, extremely glad to get the bulk of the ride in considering the broken chain. Thanks again.

    Here's the ride.

    That's a Crank Bros I believe. But be careful, those mothers come apart really, really easy.

    Singlespeeds don't break down, they just slow down....

    It is rather amusing to have Maad, with his fancy full suspension geared wonder bike have to come to the aid of a full rigid SSer. Rare, but amusing.
    And I actually have my Osprey very well packed with things I may need on a ride, adding some chain links to that list! Sadly I think Seron mentioned it with all his recent troubles - it never occurred to me that a few magic links wouldn't do the trick. When I put on a new chain tonight I'll stick the extra links in my pack for next time.

    I know. It's my pat answer for any bike that breaks down.

    I ALWAYS ride with about 3-4 inches of spare chain.

    If you rode with gears then it wouldn't matter if you were a few links short...

    ouch, kick a guy when he's down eh. LOL.

    Truth is I've been offered a killer deal on one of these, and it has me rethinking everything... I have so very much enjoyed rigid SS for the past couple thousand miles, but as I'm increased my mileage our rough trails have been beating me up. AND this offer is all shiny and new and looks purdy so it caught my eye.

    Don't do it!
    If you'd just get a suspension fork, I think you'd find life to be much more comfortable.

    I recently built up an old Niner frame with a rigid fork. While I love the way the bike handles with the steel fork, there is a huge difference in comfort between it and a suspension fork.
