|Following on from my recent post on crashing every 3000 miles or so, I managed to reach 1532 before getting marked up.
Coming out of a shallow trough, I stood up to maintain my speed, somehow my chain seemed to slip or jump, as if I had suddenly gone into my largest gear, this somehow caused my foot to uncleat and I ended up on the tarmac.
What surprised me most was the heavy thud of my helmet on the road, I was quite shocked by that.
They say every cloud has a silver lining - I reckon I've shaved at least a gram off each of my shifters. I now need to tighten the LH side as it's abit loose. Do I need to unwrap the bars to do this?? I know I know - www.parktool.com :-)
