3 miles- that blows! how long did it take you to get out of there? luckily, never happened to me (yet).
I guess the Dork Disk that you once ditched is laughing at your sorry ass now j/karies14 said:Have you ever been in a situation when you had to actually carry your bike out of the trail? Yesterday (7-4-09) I was out for a nice early morning ride and was about 60% finished when my chain hopped over the rear cassette and lodged between it and the spokes…. I mean stuck! Before you ask; I was about to hit a tough climb and shifted up in a hurry.
I tried taking the wheel out of the drops, taking out a pin or three, even considered trying to yank it out with force… I didn't pull that hard. Only option without proper tools was to pick it up and hike out to the trail head. Only about 3 miles out so not too bad, but still a pain to carry a MTB through single track….
This ever happen to any of you?
You should use that polymeric disk that goes between the cassette and spokes...the much maligned "dork disk".aries14 said:my chain hopped over the rear cassette and lodged between it and the spokes….
