I got up and rode but I was way sub par. Today the leg is basically in pain with anything other than a straight leg, my quads is swollen but not bruised yet. such a nice day and no riding :(.
There is a new chain on that bike now, and the old chain had stress fractures on other parts of the chain as well. the sad thing is after destroying a ton of BMX style chains, I found that SRAM(or shimano) 8 speed had a better design with modern bushing. .
Dont know a solution really. Besides the not pedaling as hard one.
