So I took my 2002 Specialized Rockhopper out for a spin today after installing my new Geax Blade tires. I wanted to see how good the traction on these will be as I got them for snow use. Its not snowing yet so I take them on my lawn. Im in the small cog up front and the third from biggest in the rear. So lets see if these baby's will grip or spin. I stand up and mash the pedals. The front wheel lifts off and they hook amazing. It just rained a little bit so the ground is not muddy but very dense and thick. This is fun, let me do it again. I go to pedal real hard again and the pedals jump real fast. I look down. Oh the chain fell off....wait....the front sprocket is bent in half. Guess they hook a little to good and/or I can generate way to much torque (I weigh 265).
Heres some pics...
