Outlaw 2012 Training Started 5th Dec 2010!!

Complete Standstill

TriMadMan45by TriMadMan45Feb 24th 2012
I had a bit of a disaster with a mechanical failure this monring on the bike. It would appear that the training road bike I have been using has worn the chain over time and it has managed to split and then rip the rear mech hanger off my bike. This then went into the spokes and appears to have bent a few spokes and may have buckled the wheel. I was just glad this happened on an uphill section as it was a bit of a shock coming to a complete standstill at low speed - my mind bogles as to what woudl have happened at 30mph coming down the other side of the hill.

Looks like I have a few chores to gain brownie points this weekend to replace the various parts which may need replaced.
