That looks perfectly fine right?

No wonder why I lost my bottom gears at some point during the day... Not exactly sure how that happened but it certainly wasnt like that before I went bombing down the bike park. No problem though since I will totally fix it the right way!

Obviously that chainring needs replacing anyways given the rust and overall condition. But the “bend it back into shape” fix actually worked for now. Along with a fresh coating of gear oil, the bike no longer chain sucks on every other pedal while in the lower gears! Success!

Thankfully I didnt need those gears for biking downhill so it was no impact to the rest of the trip. Idk how I didnt break anything else (or myself). But overall it was very fun and I will definitely do it again. Even on my cheap hard tail, I had a blast and was well within my safety limits at all times. Sure I was slow but that was more due to my timidness and lack of skill than my hardware. Next time I will probably demo a cool bike but I wont be trying any harder trails just yet!
