Unfreakingbelieveable: I broke my bike (again)

So I’m in Orange County, CA visiting my sister this weekend, and have gone to some length to get my bike out here. So what happens? I demolished my chain within 60 seconds of our first ride. In all my years, I’ve never twisted a chain. Gah!

The attempted repair, using nothing but pliers and a standard screwdriver:


’twas unsuccessful, stupid chain won’t rail around the smaller gears. D’oh!

Off to the bike shop in the morning for parts and supplies. In the mean time, we’re off to the local pub to sample the local Guinness :)
