I took my new fat bike out for my first mountain ride and immediately got caught in mud. Before I knew it my entire drive train was caked in mud. (me too!) Thick, heavy, clay-like mud. A few minutes later, I was testing out the gears in a parking lot and the next thing I know my chain got stuck and ripped off the rear derailleur.
I've seen advice on how to clean my bike, how to ride in the mud, what kind of equipment is best for the mud, etc. Of course, avoiding mud for safety and environmental reasons is great advice. What I want to know is "what should I have done differently?" What do you do if you're on a trail and you get mud in your drive train?
