I was looking at a youtube video of this:
bearing cap mod. basically he widened the sprocket hole. To bad I don't have one of those machines.

5-7heaven: yeah I carry spare chain I just wasn't as prepared as I thought. Half link may be worth checking in to. Didn't know they had half links for roller chains.
Last month, I wasn't prepared as well, either. I rolled over something on the road. It jumped up and broke my engine chain. No spare chain, and replacing the broken link made it too short.

It was a long 4-mile pedal ride to work that morning. I left the bike at work overnight, then returned with a truck to retrieve it the nexct day.
