    So as I was loading my bike onto the rack yesterday after riding, I noticed I could see through the jockey wheel on my derailleur...weird thinks I. So I look closer and see that the jockey wheel is cracked through...how the heck does a break like that happen?
    I break some weird stuff, and break some stuff weird... and not in the falling down a mountain, yard-saling, leaving bones (mine and others...) all over the mountainside manner. In the whatthehelldidIdotodothat manner...

    Bike gremlins. A noted problem in yurp, but not so much in the States - as explained in the book "American Gods" :thumb:

    Obviously you are too powerful for gear that us mere mortals use. Perhaps you should consider laying off the juice. ;)
