  28. I wish I had seen this sooner. I had my chain fall off a lot. Was late for work a few times. 

  29. Jeff you are a lifesaver! I was biking to my nightshift at the hospital and the chain on my bike fell off. I didn't really know anyone to call around here. so i sat on the side of the road searches for tutorials, foods yours and it worked! I even made it to work on time! Thanks for turning from a damsel in distress to an empowered female!:)

  34. does it work also on a kid bike that has fallen off?

  35. Thanks now I can ride my bike without killing myself!!! 

  36. Thank you, really helped. :]

  37. Yeah definitely get an old road bike, I got a raleigh winner from the scrapyard for pretty cheap and it's awesome. Well, until I left it at someone's house and they pulled the brakes off lol. I fixed the chain problem with mine but now the left crank arm comes loose every 5 minutes, given up caring. Check out ebay to get a cheap old school bike!

  38. haha thanks man, yeah the reason I got a fixed gear is so it would work without messing around fixing it all the time but I've spent more time dealing with problems than if I had just got a road bike. That sounds really bad too man, hope you can fix it!

  39. Hi, can anyone help me? I have already spent quite a lot doing a fixed gear bike, even sold my television and everything and I just want to ride it. The chain always falls off at the back and gets caught between the cog and wheel. It does it a lot and it means I eat shit down hills and I ripped my new trainers putting my feet down to stop. Any tips?

  40. that was really helpful

  41. multiple times i almost got late to school because my chain fell. now i shouldn't have that problem
