Perhaps not an order to wiggle, but a wee flashing light would be a nice touch.





I wait for danose to chime in and tell me that the only way to measure chain stretch* is with an imperial steel rule.



*yes danose, you heard me correctly, I said chain stretch



and a bloody good way for shimano to sell more chains

It might be good if bikes started emailing the authorities to report people running worn-out or dry chains.
Persistent offenders could be sentenced to single speed and a fully - enclosed chaincase.

I’ve ridden an Automatic bike :crazy: – a Raleigh 20 if I recall right.
What a nightmare :hmmm: – get the cadence up for the hill and it changed up the gears then on the hill it took an age to change into low gears again :rolleyes:
