It wasn't the chain's fault but..

I had a chain snap on me whilst doing 85 on the Baltimore beltway. It wound it's way around the rear wheel causing a braking effect without quite seizing the rear wheel up. The bike slowed down too quickly for me to get over so I had to pull the bike into the 3 foot wide strip between the jersey wall and the fast lane, dismount off the back of the bike, unwind the chain by hand, and run my ass and the bike across three lanes of traffic.

Good times. I had just had the rear tire replaced and the mechanic who did the work must have quit about halfway through tightening the rear wheel when he put it back on. Now I check out everything (twice!) after any service.
