Default One step forward; two steps back

Good news / bad new sort of night. I went out to the garage tonight and had a little time to kill so I was tinkering on the bike ( cleaning up the cables etc) and decided to take it for a quick spin before the sun went down.

The good news is it is really running stronger - break in is going well as I only have about 5 miles on it so far. So I am about 1 mile into the ride and all of a sudden bad vibrations start, so I quickly stopped.

The bad news - I checked bolts before the ride but failed to check the rear sprocket bolts that hold it to the hub adapter and two of the three had worked lose and were gone. Looks like no major damage although the nice aluminum sprocket has a few gouges in it now. I will check the sprocket and hub tomorrow to make sure all is well.

Up until that moment though it was running like a dream.
