all right you condesending b**ch, if my memeory serves correct, smittyben (where are you btw) had a similar problem with a repeated broken seat and a bent frame. try some lube to get it to work better. if the chain itself is too messed up, check out outdoor sports for a new one, they have good selection and prices. also, the canadien that works there is very knowledgable (and sexy, may i add).

peace out b*tches

You probably are going to need a new chain. If any of the links have gotten twisted, it's junk. It would be smart to keep the old chain so that you'll know how much you have to shorten the new one.

...or at least count the links before you throw the old one away.
