Well, the new bicycle has been going great guns! Helped me take 4 minutes off my previous best time up the Old Freeway in two trips up, been to McLaren Vale on a wet, wet morning, and HAD relegated the Southcott to school taxi service and general hack about town... until now.
This evening I am sitting on the couch trying to decide whether to stay in bed in the morning or take the Southcott up the Old Freeway again as today the Kennedy broke her chain.
I was headed up to Flinders Uni, had just gone over South Rd on Sturt, had slowed for the traffic to clear, checked over the shoulder, stand, pedal, SNAP! I looked down to see vacant front chain rings and veered left back to the curb. I pulled the chain out of the rear deraileur and put it in my bag... and continued the journey up to Flinders on foot.
Thankfully, there is no need to pedal back down the hill, so on I jumped and freewheeled all the way back to the Tonsley Train Station... "The next train will depart platform 2 at 3.42pm."
Check time... 2.47pm.... missed the last train by 5 minutes. bother!
Oh well... 1/2 hour walk home, except for the last couple of hundred metres, which are all down a gentle slope into the driveway.
So now the question is, what chain do I replace the old one with? What would you (or do you) use on a Campagnolo Centaur 10sp grupo?
