Soon into my ride today my chain came off as I downshifted going up a hill. The photo above shows how the chain was wedged between the gears and bottom bracket.
There was no way my fingers could pry the chain out. I travel with a bike multi-tool and a leatherman type multi-tool. I was able to use the pliers to loosen the grip on the chain.
I do not use tools each outing, but when I need them; I am glad to have them.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
