Thomas the Dutch Man’s Chain


When I rode out of Brisbane with Thomas there was little on my mind other than how noisy his chain was. Discussions worked out that he has been riding with the same chain on his rholoff hub for something like 17,000km from Melbourne, around Tasmania up to Sydney, around both islands of New Zealand then all the way from Sydney to Brisbane. After that day his chain still lasted him until Proserpine. As you can see when it broke he sent me a few links. They are so loose that they wobble and slide against each other.
