This is not me (honest) but this was my route to work.... http://www.thisisnorthdevon.co.uk/images/localpeople/ugc-images/275834/G...

I tried to kayak down this street a few years ago and was told, "You are taking the piss f**k off" By a Police officer (fair comment) this time there were people kayaking and long-boarding (with a paddle). The £1.2M flood defences have just been completed.... Ouch!

But the best bike shop in Devon (Southfork in Braunton) was OK.... Phew

i had my powerlink ping off on my mtb last time i went to afan. didn't have a spare so i had to re-join the chain, sadly it was one of those chains that isn't designed to be re-joined. It snapped three more times and i ended up in the granny ring only, then singlespeed, then walking for the last half a mile  22

i use the BBB ones now. they're reusable, unlike the stock SRAM ones

Nah, it was a 9 speed SRAM chain with a 9 speed Wipperman link on it. I couldn't fit the SRAM links that came with it. I've fitted lots of links of various types before but these were too tight.

Hopefully I have some kind of other spare 9 speed links somewhere in the garage. I guess I could pinch the link off the Orbea, it's a summer bike.

Is anywhere doing nice 9 speed chains on special?
