Chuck, as you have seen, your tool tube saved my bacon twice. Muchas gracias my friend.

The saga of the chain continued. It grew progressively worse, and I fixated on it - long days on a bike gave me too much time to think (and fret). After getting the chain and sprockets ordered I had a decision to make; I had packed my chain tool, but for some stupid reason I didn't think to bring the wrenches I would need ... let alone a grinder or the inch and 1/4 socket I would need to take the front sprocket off. As you know, I have everything I would need home.

The decision: try to round up loaner tools and / or buy what I would need (stuff I really don't need duplicates of at home), or find a competent mechanic. Hmmmm

I had a few days of uneasy riding to decide.
