    Couple month old, 2kish miles. I was about to replace it. Maybe I should invest in chain measuring tool.

Put it on a stand and peddle forward slowly to see if it does, or if there's a point where it kind of snaps back into place
    Hmm, I'll check. Thanks.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!

    Ok, put a bike on a stand with spare back wheel. Didn't notice anything unusual about the chain, or the teeth on chainring. Damnit. Going to bring it to a shop.

    Weird. 2k miles doesn't seem like enough to really wear a chain. And even if it was worn it doesn't seem that like could explain it.

    Gremlins?

    My awesome luck? lol.

    Took it to outfitters, The chain is fine, but FD might be miss adjusted. When it's already shifted everything looks ***** donky, but during a shift it looked like chain was almost ready to jump it. They will take a look at it. I don't remember if I was shifting or not during the sprint.

    On a side note, I swear I thought I hit my head against the ground when I binned it, but looking at the helmet there are no marks.

    Oh well I guess I can be social now and join a group ride or two (probably not spectrum lol).

    Huh, so that was Rand's last race? Cool guy... and he can put back more than a few pints when he's not terrorizing Strava.

    That course looks like a lot of fun. EXCITED.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    I'm thinking it's the same based on the flyer.

    yeah, I was bummed too? I can't make Henleyville either so I guess I'll go burn some matches at HOP again

    They ran the first one back in March or April, my teammates said it was a fun course.

    The first one of the "series" was back in Feb, yeah.

    But my guess is the low pre-reg counts prompted them to axe it.. maybe I shoulda pre-reg'd!!

    Assuming the usual Velo Promo p/1/2 start time of 8 AM, it's a bit much.. I feel crazy enough leaving the house at 5 AM to make it to their other races!

    b ride is shorter, with longer regroups. good for fat people (me) and crit racers (you).

    I think they are mostly redundant, but crit racers are also generally super sensitive.

    The Low Key Hill Climbs start this Saturday with Montebello. Pre-register if you want a spot. If you have not done these, they are a great off season training series of hill climb events that are well organized and run. I did not call them races since they are not sanctioned or insured as a race per se.

    Daniel, the guy that runs them, is an awesome dude. His events are super fun.
