I just returned from a quick yet long night riding on the brand spanking new bike.
As I was about to ride back on the pedestrian walkway, I didn't see the plastic water bottle.
As soon as I saw it, I thought the bike would simply ride over it without a problem.
But I was clearly wrong. Could have been because the bike is a hybrid and not a mountain bike.
Fell straight down with both hand landing on the concrete and the new bike dropped sideways.
I didn't worry much about the physical damage. When I got back on, oh no! The chain was producing an abnormal sound. Everytime the pedal is spinned once, the weird nose comes out.
When I change gears higher, the sound gets higher. When using the brake, the sounds is there.
I might need to take the bike tomorrow for a checkup. I hope they will be kind enough to see what the problem is.
What could be the problem? Couldn't check because it is dark and fairly late.
Bought a new bike today.
Went on a joy ride late night.
Water bottle on walkway.
The bike slips rather than running over the plastic bottle.
Fell and now the bike chain makes unwanted sound.
Hope the dealer helps out tomorrow.
