Set a new personal "best" today. Previously stood a three rides, but today I got it down to one ride. Yup, that's another helmet written off.

Last day of holidays before going back to work tomorrow, so I headed out for wee road ride in my brand new Kask Mojito. Last hill from home, out of the saddle and the chain snapped. Avoided smacking my baws on the stem, but with no forward momentum I keeled over like a sack of spuds. Thankfully it all happened so fast I didn't have time to stick a hand out, but I did land on the side I broke in Whistler. Shoulder fine, but clouted the back of my head and my glasses took a bite of my nose on the way off. Helmet did it's job though, pretty sure i'd have been knocked out if I had't been wearing one. Also lucky that I was on the old road that's been bypassed and only used by farm traffic.

Drivetrain had been a bit noisy in certain gears during the ride, but I'd thought it was just a stiff link as the chain had been pretty neglected recently, I guess I should have heeded the warning signs. Whole drivetrain has done four winters and I was trying to eek it out until spring, but looks like it's time to change. And new bar tape, since one side is a bit worse for wear now. At least Kask do a crash replacement, so the next helmet's half price!
