Not checking the adjustment of the rear derailleur on the trike when I should have....and then missing the change to 1st gear on a steep climb....chain slips off 1st gear onto spokes and derailleur arm mangles itself in the spokes for good measure.
The good things. Only 10 km from home on the Main Yarra Trail in Westerfolds Park near Odyssey House (could have been a lot worse). Several passing cyclists asked if I was OK and if they could help. Thanks!!
The ironic thing: Owner of LBS I visited yesterday to acquire a new derailleur told me he had seen me walking / trotting the trike through the last suburb before home, figured that I had the situation under control and that he might see me soon-ish! (Hi Marcus of Walkers Wheels, Montmorency!)
