new chain, new cassette

Toronto, 2015.06.24

After barely eight months, I'm already on my second chain and cassette. I stopped at Velotique to talk to the owner about the fact that my chain was already skipping and my chain stretch tool was tut-tutting. He wasn't impressed with my strategy of swapping out the cassette, shifter, and derailleur to convert it to a seven speed, and once I realized that the derailleur would have to go, I wasn't impressed either.

He did caution me to get a chain cleaner and some better lube, and to do this thing called "taking care of my bike".
