Scraping Noise
« on: September 21, 2007, 11:36:48 AM »
My bike had a terrible scraping noise as I pulled into work this morning.

Oh wait, that was the brake pedal scraping against the pavement!

YEE-HAW!

Mine had a terrible scraping noise about a week ago, but it was me and the bike falling over when I foolishly missed getting the kickstand all the way down when I parked. No real scratches on the bike, but the peg did fold up and the clutch handle got pushed way out of position. Oh, and I got to visit the ER and get neat x-rays of my knee. Just got off the crutches and walking on my own again....

I'll leave the peg scraping to the "experts"... Even when the bike is stationary.   ::)
