Back in the early 90's I was riding my Peugot (sp?) mountain bike on some fairly tame single-track...tried to muscle up a mild grade and instead succeeded in FOLDING MY CHAINRING IN HALF! The top half of my granny gear just collapsed on itself (bent 90 degrees to the left) from the torque of my pedaling. I had to hammer it back flat (-ish) with a rock just so the cranks could make a complete revolution.

And then I had to ride the rest of the trail without my smallest chainring. Probably explains why I rarely go mountain biking anymore.
