Broke a spoke had to cruise on back home

It’s been a while but the Ripmo incurred a minor injury at the beginning of the climb on our second loop at the top. With a very loud clang a rear spoke gave up on life. Luckily we were climbing and able to stop quickly preventing the broken spoke from lodging against the disc brake or into the frame. I wrapped the dangling offender around another spoke and we completed our second climb. We took it slow and easy on descent which the Ripmo complained about but it allowed us to return home without any further mechanical issues.

The ride – Providence Canyon

The bike – Ibis Ripmo
