It's another. So while peddling up a steep hill, I heard a nasty crunch sound from my crank area. I'm guessing the bearing in the crank just exploded! I've had peddles break on me in the past, which sucks but no where near this.. So now I am down a crank. Time to hit the bike shop again, shell out some cash.
Think I'll take advantage of this and try to get a larger sprocket.
-- Edit --
Brought the bike to the bike shop (Velozophie) and the rebuilt the bearing by "repacking" them, greasing it all up and put it all back together. Ya.
