that just shows how long it's been since i've ridden, as in there were no multitools. i think all i ever carried was a tube, my patch kit, and those 3 plastic tire levers that used to stack together.

sure did a number on your derailleur, that sucks.

not exactly a twig though, how did you manage to get that wedged in there?

I'm still not sure how it happened. I saw the branch on the ground and thought I rode around it. I was climbing so I had plenty of time to react. My front wheel seems to have gone around the branch but then it got caught in my rear wheel somehow.

The branch that got me was part of this mess:


Maybe I thought I was avoiding this branch while I was looking at another branch instead? I don't know.

Also, maybe there is weird juju on PV Drive West? Check out:

Ernesto Colnago is 84 years old? He sure doesn't look it.

If your theory is correct, I hope he uses the Campy Cavatappi to open his bottle a day:
