Happend to me this weekend
Out of the saddle hammering hard up a climb and SNAP down I went. Glad I was by myself and just doing the 10 mile loop by my house. I just washed my gear and forgot to put the extra piece of chain and power link back in my bag (first time in 3 years of SS'ing I broke a chain). Had to call wifey to come pick me up.TwistedCrank said:On a recent ride flipinidaho remarked that if he every broke his chain while riding he'd be hosed (so would I). Earthpig told us he carried five chainlinks and a powerlink just in case.
That got me wondering if I should add some chainlinks to the just-in-case pouch - even though I ride with a 1/8" chain and I weigh a lanky 175 lbs..
If you have ever broken a chain what was the field repair? Do you carry spare links?
