Just need to vent a bit... My bike has been in the shop for over a month for some panel work. I got it back and went for a loong ride (250k+), forgetting to check the chain. Midway through the ride, I looked at it and it looked dry.. they must have degreased it because I never let it dry. It wasn't getting warm so I thought it'll be fine till I get home. So I went to lube it when I got home and there are a few rubber slivers sticking out of some O-rings. Looks like the chain's started munching the O-rings ](*,) The chain wasn't hot though.. Looks like I've signed the death warrant for this chain. After so many k's of meticulous lubing! gah. bj.
