    That was the first, and only, thing to go wrong with my bike (knock on wood). I heard it happen and was lucky enough to find the parts. Tightened them up, trouble-free since.

    ICE! Freeze a cup of water and use the ice on your knee while you're hanging watching TV. You say it's so take anti-inflammatories, ice, ride and repeat.
