Default Fractured front cog?

Dear Bikers,

I fear my bike has a fracture in its front cog. I first noticed something
was wrong when I heard the front cog hitting against the front derailleur
once every revolution of the pedals. It turned out the front cog was
actually bent and so "wobbled" as it rotated, relative to the front
derailleur. Closer inspection showed that the front cog was a little loose
and could be jiggled a little. The join between the front cog and the right
pedal was clearly loose.

I took the right pedal off and found a little crack in the front cog. Some
photos are he

Is this a fracture? If so, how dangerous is it? Can I ride my bike with
this fracture? Do I need a new front cog & right pedal?

Thanks,
Jack


That link doesn't work for me. At anyrate, be sure and carry extra duct
tape in case the cob breaks 30 miles frome home, eh? ;-D

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I think he really meant "chainring." :-)

I couldn't get the link to work, either, but I would not ride with a
chainring that might fail. Not only do you risk being stranded with nothing
but a roll of duct tape--if it happens when you are pressing hard on the
pedal, you could hurt yourself. :-(

I was referring to Badger's typo ("cob"), which you snipped (and then
referred to the OP).

Sorry, Sorni...I always do that, since I assume that everyone reads these
posts in order. I did get your joke, and thought it was funny. My line
might have been, also, with better timing.
