    I'm not disagreeing with you that there is anything wrong with calibrating your distance with your method. From my point of view however I am the opposite...I want to know how far I have actually...

    Actually “your” method is not really more accurate. If you did the roll out "properly" you should have arrived at the correct value for your circumference with a lot less effort. Your method can be...

    Put on enough to get between the links and then try to remove as much as possible. The lube that you can't see or feel is all that you want on the chain. Everything else justs attracts dirt.

    My vote would be for hydrogen embrittlement. Your pictures look very similar to pictures on Velo News "Technical Q&A with Lennard Zinn - Not-so-Simple Green". Worn cassette probably didn't help but...

    I have a non-coded Cardiosport HRM and I have found that if the HRM is >3" away from the double-wireless, interference isn't a problem. Also, wearing it on the wrist will alleviate interference.
