had a "shift pawl spring" break on me today. 80 miles from home! leaves you in second gear w/ no abilty to shift whatsoever.

No neutral nothin'

It was fun riding another 20 miles in second gear to a friends where I could park the bike. Even more fun was the 2 hour bus ride home.

The tranny has to be pulled and disassembled to replace the $3.00 spring.

I couldn't even be mad about it, fukit it's all a freaky wild adventure whose next stop for me involves getting to know a certain german tranny. I just hope it don't take any time away from the 40 other pressing projects.

good morning!

That's it your beemer's junk and the only thing left for you to do is sell it to me before you tear it apart completely. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

second gear could be great on the right road back. when i was a boy, we used to push our bikes all the way home when they broke. of course they didn't weigh as much as a car.
