Default Re: Chain ripped apart? no idea why

If your chain is loose enough, it can easily try to ride off a sprocket while leaning and hitting bumps in the street.
Once it tries to ride off the sprocket, it can be torn apart in an instant, while all you hear/feel is a pop come from the chain area.

IMO, best solution is to run a proper spring-loaded chain tensioner.
