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

Quick question, When on the small chain ring and granny ring if I pedal backwards the chain wants to drop, if I pedal forward it doesn’t look like the chain is seated properly. It’s not affecting how it rides, but I don’t like noises.
Don't pedal backwards.

Personally, I wouldn't want a finisher's medal. I'd happily wear a finisher's t-shirt, but a medal would go to waste.

The derailleur and/or hanger could be bent inwards - that's a part of what caused my thrown chain, I think. Pedaling forward, that alignment might not be problematic much of the time, but pedaling backwards the chain is too far out of alignment for the teeth at the bottom of the chainring to engage.

If it was bent inwards would it only do this on one cog? I believe the hanger is steel and part of the frame. I havnt crashed it so I can’t imagine ifs bent out of the blue. Could it be an indexing issue?

It would be most likely to do it on the largest cog, since it's the furthest inward. Just put it in the front/rear combo that's giving you trouble and look at the alignment of the chain at the bottom of the chainring.

Yeah, I have loads of race shirts and hats from my mediocre running and sailing careers (none of my bike race swag survives) and I wear them. No medals.

Likely a small adjustment needed on the limit screw. I'd also check the chain for a stiff link.

How many times did you have it done? Over how long a period of time? Has it stopped totally?

I know you guys aren't drag racing fans but 338 mph in 1000 feet is pretty impressive.

I was told to do it 3 times a day, 3 repetitions per side (L & R) until it stopped. I think it was gone after 3 or 4 days. It is gone completely. You do it yourself on a bed. It takes 10 or 15 minutes each time so 30-45 minutes per day. Search YouTube for a visual demonstration.

Could be "B" tension setting or chain wrong length.

I was a toddler when that picture was taken. But I was probably at the track that day.

There was a strip a few miles from home when I was a ute. We could ride our bikes there and watch for free from an overpass.

I had a check up one time and as the visit was almost over, the doc asked if I had any other concerns and I said my left knee was aching under the knee cap. He said, “Does your right knee hurt?” To which I replied, “No.”

He said, “Well, they’re the same age so I don’t think there’s a problem. See you next year.”

Wut?
