To those who have broken chains mid pedal...
« on: January 17, 2016, 03:33:36 PM »
... how long did it take to commit to a full balls out pedal?

I broke a 410H about 2 months ago, didn't real go OTB too badly but I can't help but feel a little nervous to actually lean into a full tits pedal. I find myself kinda leaning backwards while cranking at things, feels awkward. It doesn't help that my chainline is a little funky and makes odd noises with each crank around.

Am I just a wimp?

No, I would be sketched to do as much work in a pedal too. I haven't broke a chain in a long time though.

Wippermann 1R8 is a chain you can trust, it's so strong that it wears down drivers.

410's have always been death traps. Get a 510 and forget about it.

would rather watch the olympics if i want to see a black guy jump things, least they don\'t have the mentality of a beaten 13 year old.

I bought a 710 from my LBS because it was %20 off, so I'll see how this one does me. That Wippermann looks badass though, their chain testing videos are sweet.

first thing I thought about was shadow chains, and a friend slamming into the face of a dirtjump when his broke while pedaling at it

How have your chains failed? plates breaking? pins not holding the links together?

I've only had this one chain break, which is why I'm so uneasy now. It's never happened before. My plates broke on the link that was connected to my half-link.

I hate admitting to being a fucking dinosaur but waaaay back in the Mesozoic era rednecks did not have chamfered edges. Cut my knee so many times from hitting my 44t on feebles and consequently having my chain fall apart. So glad that the garbage parts are in the past.

Those were the days. I had a red redneck.

I'm fine when I get a new chain. Iffy if it is a franken chain.
