    I tried the same last evening. Took the single speed w/ no tools just the water bottle. Was great for the first hour then a broken chain ~8miles from home so the latter third was a slog. Last time I tried the same I had a slashed tire so lesson learned.

    That may have been you I came up on at Picnic. I heard that chain pop, and I was wearing earbuds (albeit shitty ones). I'd have helped if I had tools. Broken chain blows it, but better than a broken hanger or something....especially with no tools. I have kick biked it back home from Brushy quite a few times..get off, walk, get back on, kick toes on ground, coast, repeat...blows. I'll miss the dropper for 2 things...A) stop and chill and lower seat (but don't like stopping anyway) and B) lower seat for easier Fred Flintstoning back home.

    Wore my satchel (fanny pack) for first time this weekend. Felt good but did have to readjust as water supply dwindled. Also got heckled quite a bit

    "Nice fanny pack, Barney!" There, that's over with. You just illustrated why I won't get a fanny pack hydration system. Lack of water volume.

    Volume is plenty for a typical summer ride at Brushy (the Palos, anyway). I think what he meant was that as the water supply dwindled, he had to readjust the straps to compensate for lost tension (a full bladder is tighter on the waist).

    I just say that the fanny pack is a counter weight for my fat gut.


    All the chicks dig it then

    Yep that was me near the east end of Picnic close to the split between upper and lower. good that it's an easy fix and the kick biking worked better than I thought it would although I do have a nice bruise on the inside of my knee from hitting the pedal quite a few times on the way back home. Oh well live and learn.

    Cuz the weight of a masterlink and multi tool is so heavy? More weight makes you a man.
    Grab life by the timbales.

    I live off the land... There's rosemary and guinea hen eggs and coastal oats in my neighborhood!

    I plan to do an evening/night ride tomorrow around 7:15 starting at the Y. Anybody else riding out there around that time?

    LOL. Not the weight I do have plenty carry w/o the pack and tools. I just did not want to deal with wearing the Osprey pack and then the cleaning it out post ride.

    I've been lucky with light rides lately. I'm due for a fatal mechanical soon.

    The last night ride for me at Brushy was replace the derailler hanger on Dave's Ditch time. I snagged a rock on one of those loose ass corners and the good times commenced.

    Great I was a bit worried that it would be a mess with the rain yesterday evening. I went to put the chain back on the SS last night and it was somehow missing about a foot of length. I have no idea how I manged to break it in two places at the same time so if anybody comes across a short section of chain on Picnic please throw it out or donate it to swag for me. I'll also look for it when I'm out there tomorrow. Stupid chain was not that old.

    Putting down the power! At least take solace in knowing that a chain tool and master link wouldn't have helped you.

    Yep, one downside to SS is that, unless you carry a couple of extra links, a broken chain spells the end of the ride; at least with gears you can limp home on a shortened chain.

    I think I've only ever had a wide link break on a chain.

    That's what happened with this one master broke and another wide link broke. At least it's an easy fix with a new chain and not something like a hanger, hub or broken chain stay.
