The only word I can think of is Owwwwwwwwwwwwww

Congratulations on becoming a triathlete. Just know that it will get much better. I can't wait to read the next report.

Hey, seems one of the pics is missing? And it was the one I most wanted to see - "Iron Pol entering T2 (note bike, helmet and feet, now)". :)

What am epic race! You did good, everyone else would have DNF'ed. Way to stick to 'em guns.

I hope you got the Bike Store to compensate you for all the pain you have to go thru. There is no excuse for the chain to snap - even if it is last year's model, the bike store has the responsibility to ensure it is serviceable before they sell it. Maybe you should write in to Felt and express your extreme disappointment. You may get a new model Felt for it. :D

Good idea about Felt, Kewl. It wasn't really the bike store's fault. Well, with the exception that they were supposed to have the bike Friday. That would have allowed me to take the bike out for the two test rides I had planned.

And presumably I'd have snapped the chain on one of those.
