    Before and after every ride I spin the front and rear wheels, religiously, to make sure they're true. I did so before this ride. After my chain came off and I'd put it back on, my rear wheel was so...
  5. Chain Slipping After Dropping Onto Bottom Bracket

    My chain came off the inner chainring and dropped onto the frame last week when I downshifted from the middle chainring. Before that happened, I'd had no shifting problems whatsoever. The flying...

    I didn't ride Saturday (or Friday or today, so far) because Thursday, immediately after I downshifted to the inner chainring on my approach to a hill, my chain came off and damaged my rear wheel.

    I've read elsewhere that October is a good month for cycling in Yosemite: after the crowded seasons and before the first snowfall. I'm going to try and get there next weekend.
