    I'm not entirely sure what happened here to cause this, or where the chain went when it broke, but I'm fairly certain that the timing of it's departure corresponded with the god-awful clanging noise that made it sound like I backed into something in the middle of an empty parking lot.:confused:

    I love broken equipment:realmad:

    Looks minor to me unless I am missing something. I replace those chains every year whether they need it or not and they always need it.

    Just screwed up the one sprocket. It was more the inconvenience of breaking down in the middle of my route. My mechanic fixed it in 20 minutes with parts we already had in the shop.
