Hey, at least he didn't take it for a test spin with the chain like that.
Oh no, he rode it. Thought he had everything 'close enough to ride'...he didn't even know it was a problem.

This is the home mechanics version of falling over the first time you ride in clipless pedals.
100% Agreed. Happened to me as well.

Nah...I think you've got a little time left before we need to replace anything...

Wow... I wouldn't even think that'd be possible.

I gotta know... what's the chain length measure???
Note how screwed up the rollers are, NVM the stretch.

I'll check it when it comes back in for the service appt but there isn't any stretch. A ton of wear, no stretch.

Interesting that it looks like only two of those cogs are well worn. Didn't this guy ever shift?

And that chain looks like it's coming apart.

And dirty as fv*k, though you did tell me you're now working on mostly mountain bikes.

A lot of guys w/ electric bikes don't shift. That's what kills all the motors on the Specialized bikes. People shift to the 11 and figure since they have a motor why shift to easier cogs? The torque just ruins the motors.

I imagine it isn't too good for stock cheapo wheels either.
