My First Chain Drop with Wide-Narrow Chainring
So it happened. Yesterday I was riding my bike, encountered some terrain which was heavily tree-rooted, and the chain fell off. Wide-Narrow chainrings, such as one from Race Face I was using, are supposed to keep a chain from derailing. Of course, they do not guarantee that for 100% of the time. I am curious how often that would happen, especially one a bike without any chain-tensioning devices.
To commemorate the moment, and to collect statistics for future cases, I plan to write all such encounters down.
