    Must admit it's got me looking at CAMPAGNOLO...

    It sounds like a problem with the outer cable and or the end caps. (If it isn't the inner cable fraying at the nipple, which is also a possibility)

    I have one new and still in its packaging.
    £20 posted.

    Chains "often" snap (not all that frequently, but I have seen quite a lot over the years) through a flaw in the side plate, usually but not always caused by a rivet imperceptibly damaging the plate as it is inserted. It fails miles down the road, without any warning. I have also seen perfectly good quick link fail, where it had just inexplicably come apart.
    I always wear crash helmet just in case.

    Don't bother. I backed this on indiegogo, and apart from the traditional delays (it is only now for sale and it is about six months late) the device is completely useless.
    It has a range of about 15 feet in direct sight, less if anything is in the way
    It has a brilliant app, which has a separation alert so if the trackr and the phone with the app part company for any distance the phone sounds an alert and the tracker emits a whistle. The trouble is that the trackr signal drops out all the time so they both keep sending alarms, and it works even when the phone is on silent, and both things are in your pocket. I have had it two days and am sick of it.

    Have you just put the price up because it hasn't sold?

    Great stuff.
    Chapeau.
    I rode most of the pave later in the day after the sportive was over. I have often thought about doing it fixed (I go every year) but as I was chaperoning a bunch of riders I stuck with gears.
    And I didn't stack or flat. In fact I never have either in the last 15 or so years. Famous last words.

    Careless driving? Surely this is as close to dangerous driving as you could find.
    This then means he cannot be sentenced to jail for as long.
    This is still a travesty.
