I usually don't hurt myself doing bike cleaning, service or repairs , but I did yesterday.
I was cleaning the chain and lubing it for Sunday's Century ride. I found my bike with a rear flat. The new tire was OK , but an old patch had come off ( more about that in another blog). As I was moving the chain on from the small front gear to the middle gear, it snapped in place catching my finger. Blood immediately covered my finger. I did get a 1/4" slice.
I learned that the derailleur spring is powerful and be careful.
