    • How many miles has it done?

    • Why did you even let it get that bad to the point it can fall off in the first place

    • the hindsight brigade has arrived

    • 2200

    • I wouldnt mind but its not even like its loose its still tight all round and i dont get what you mean by let it get that bad

    • Wow, that's not a lot. Surely it shouldn't be ruined after that mileage?

    • It jumped off i think but cant be to sure

    • If its tight all round your chain couldn't have just fallen off

    • Well im telling you now its tight and as i pulled away from a set of lights it had come off

    • I think the bike needs a good once over when you've got some some time, it's shite being stranded!

    • You could have loose spots Stuart. Try getting the wheel off the ground and slowly spinning it and pulling on the chain to make sure the chain is evenly tight :)

    • I managed to get it back on luckily but might not be so lucky next time

    • Oh i will be lol got the day off tomorrow so can do it then

    • Any idea what the dealio is? Are your sprockets in decent condition?

    • From what i can see they are mate yea

    • What sort of mileage?

    • How many times did you clean, lube and adjust the chain in that 2200 miles?

      I do mine every 500 miles, but the book says every 300.

      I hate to think how bad your chain must have been for it to come off.

    • Not atm mate ive only put 500 miles on it the chain looks ok but it can be deceiving though

    • Happened to me today mate. Not taking chance so got new chain an sprocket on route.
