Funny, I had a similar experience this weekend it went like this: pedal pedal pedal clink-ity clink-ity clink-ity

My cassette lock ring came unthreaded, cogs too...

My chain snapped on Sunday - luckily I was hundred metres or so from my house. Quick split link later and off on a nice jolly.

Had the BB work loose last week, decided to keep riding as wasnt far from home, then hd the handle bar stem bolts work loose. It all felt very unwieldily by the time I got there. bars rotating and leaning one way, BB flexing and wobbling the other, very odd feeling.

But Sod's law says if you'd actually wanted to get that chain set off you'd have needed dynamite to shift it.

Had a pedal fall of a hired bike in Spain one year on holiday. !5 miles home with one pedal, in sandals. The top of my foot was in shreds by the time I got back.

Got a refund though.

All I've ever had happen is snapping the axle on an XT pedal pounding up Ketts Hill on my way home from work...

...of course, that was in the days when I could pound uphill :oops:
