I'm betting I would take out a few links before the ride home and then toss the rest of it when I got home.

I was actually happy to notice it because it means the hitch I've been feeling the past month or so while pedalling probably isn't a trashed freehub after all. Plus I've got an extra cassette just waiting to be installed.

I suppose I should clean and lube my chain more often though....

You can all breathe a sigh of relief, because tragedy has been narrowly averted...


Well, except for the fact that it now skips alarmingly under load. Whadaya think, chainring?


Oh, and its officially confirmed that there is no grease -- zero, zip, nada -- in the rear hub whereas before I was only surmising based on the fact that there's none in the front hub.

Maybe when I clean and lube my chain I should consider other maintenance too.

Nah!

You must have attended Bigrider Technical Institute for Bike Maintenance.

I am also pitiful at maintaining my bikes. I know how to do it, I just get lazy and don't get around to it often enough.
