Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can you explain how did it happen? If my chain is dropped, it is normally caught by chain catcher,
but to make the damage from the bottom, the chain need to pass the BB somehow,
unless the bike is upside down, or something


What would you do to prevent it in future??


Thanks!

In the end... it's fix. I took the opportunity to completely rebuild the bike replacing the bearings with Ceramic Speed, new chain and new cables.

Calfee does a great job.

The chain dropped and I soft pedaled to get the chain back on the rings. Instead it stuck on the teeth and I stupidly caused the damage.

It was my fault and I paid for it. Trust me it won't happen again.

A bit of an update. I dropped the parts I had off at the LBS this past Saturday. Along with the seat mast I've added a set of HED Ardennes + Black wheels (Used) wrapped in Vee Rubber Road Runner tires. Shimano 105 R7000 all around. The shop owner just sent me an email, going to add a black KMC chain as well. I'll try to post a picture after I pick it up. The bike will be as black as the Spinal Tap black album.

My Émonda






My 2019 Trek Émonda SLR frame, replacing an identical damaged frame under warranty (thanks, Trek). Components were transferred over the damaged bike. I've made a few changes, principally switching out the wheelset (which was nice but not particularly aero and not particularly lightweight). The new wheels make me think I can pedal faster, even if I can't. With the wheels and a few changes of components, the weight of the bike is 6.7 kg (slightly under 15 pounds). H1 geometry. I went with the Bontrager direct mount brakes.

I can tell that it's a lightweight bike when I carry it up two steps onto my front porch after a ride. Other times, not so much. ;-)

I went with the Project One option, which let me choose the color I wanted and minimal decals in a classic Trek font.

Look at the rails not the padding, it is an ISM saddle and is not set up the same as other saddles. I do have some forward tilt to it, but not as extreme as it seems. I am very comfortable on it and I have already ridden one century on it (although not on this bike).
