I only buy chains from reliable shops after breaking chains that I purchased off of Amazon. Havenít broken one since making that a rule.

We've seen the Tregurtha, and one or two of the others that are a few feet shorter, in person - she's a bigg'n.

That reminds me - Tall Ships is back on the year, but they're moving up the coast shore from Duluth. Need to check with the wife and see if we've booked that yet.

Nice! I went to a couple of Tall Ships Tacoma shindigs, but those are no more :(

Any kind of fish oil would probably be approved

I broke my ******g chain again this AM. Itís in the trash, my irritation is high.

This chain has broken at three different links. Iím not really sure wtf is up with it, hopefully itís just the chain and not a bigger issue.

I would suspect it's counterfeit. Where did you get it?

I think that word began with an F and ended with a G.

Yeah, I managed to trace the creaking/clicking on two bikes to chainring bolts. Loose, not missing, though.

Just finished up a 30 mile windy ride. The headwind was bad but the crosswind was brutal. Finished with the winds at 21 mph and gusting to 38 mph. Even my fat butt couldn't keep the bike from side-slipping in the gusts. The last 3 miles in particular were scary.

My Sunday ride week before last was really windy, too, and every time I felt my wheels drift a little I was reminded of the crash in the Strada Bianchi race.

Alaphilippe's somersault, and the way his bike FLIES over him, is what my Dad would have called 'Going ass over teakettle'. Just amazing.
