was riding home today and noticed a snapping sound everytime i took off from the lights and a sudden drop in acceleration . kinda like a backfire but im kinda thinking it wasnt. i stopped at the lights near fish markets and hopped off for a moment and saw one link in my chain was stuck at an angle ---------\_________ type. i realised that it had been 9 months since i lubed the chain so i stopped in to the shop and bought a can of lube and sprayed it on the ht chain :S. seemes to have fixed the "backfire" sound. any ideas on what exactly was happening?? will i need to replace the chain?
