Friend had off school today so he & our other friend went to the skatepark, 40 minutes away. Rode like an hour tops and I was filming a line involving a tailwhip, went to land it and SNAP! This happened )):

Of course we had no tools and no one was up there to ask them to use their tools either, so I was shit out of luck.


Anyone else have one of those days? You're all pumped to ride, go out somewhere far and that shit happens? I was bummed haha


Oh the chain's the Odyssey BlueBird if anyone's wondering, it comes with the halflink installed

It happens. I snapped the cult half link the day I got it. It came on the 510. And I snapped a 710sl the day I got it too, 3 times first day

I'm on the vital legit list!

That's not good haha. I've had this chain since November, I guess all the pressure from learning whips finally took it's toll. But yeah shit happens, I was just super bummer cause we had the park to ourselves & that's a rare occurrence haha

Those kmc half links fucking blow. I used to use them to dial my chain up and they broke on me a lot. Find a tougher half link. I've got a shadow on my chain atm, so far so good.

I'm not too worried about it, I think I only had it in there cause my integrated chain tensioners got jammed in my dropouts and I couldn't get them out so I just tossed the halflink in there.. But I got the tensioners out awhile ago and now my chain fits fine cause I already fixed it haha

Anyone remember the chain RiverSideRider runs? It's beefy with no driver mods needed.

Haha daaang. i always bring my tools when i go to the skatepark, not really for me because i keep my bike running fresh and i fix stuff for other people. but yes, if i were you i would ditch that chain and go with a dropbuster or kool chain, put any other half link than KMC or KHE in there and you should be fine haha

Haha, mine LOOKS like a dirtbike chain, assuming you mean motorcycle chain, but isn't. He had like, the next strength down from the Wippermann 1G8.

Edit; RiverSideRider has the KHE collapse.

I have 3 links upside down on my brand new Mechanik Half Trak chain right now that I've been riding for almost 2 weeks. The upside down links grind my driver teeth a bit but that doesn't matter. It gets a super tight spot when it starts grinding and it's stretching out the chain like fuck and starting to pull my wheel further in. So much for trying to slam my wheel.... I'm gonna go back to my KMC Z 410 chain with a masterlink. That shit is way more trustier.

A similar thing happened to me, I rode to a park about an hour away on bike, rode for about 10 minutes, let someone on my bike, it made a weird noise, I went back on it and the chain snapped a few seconds later.
