Stemming from the broken chain I think there is something wrong with my rear derailler because as I was pedalling it would make a clicking sound. It looks like the cage may be bent. I think I might take it in and get a new chain, and probably replace the derailler with a medium cage anyway. The derailler has never been the same since hitting that rock or log last summer. That bent the hanger, knocked the derailler out of whack, and now this.
Still, this ride was a totall hammer fest. I just about climbed everything. My earlier problems weighed heavily on my mind though. When I got home, I felt completely exhausted.
Didn't take many pictures on the ride but shot some video that I put up YouTube. It's the same video on the CT NEMBA blog post. Decided to try a different type of sound track but I forgot to edit it so after the screen blanks you might want to stop it manually.
