I had one of my chains snap and pop last week. it didn't come clean in half but it did pop off after snapping. I learned how to stop a bike with no brakes... violently push your foot against the front tire and hope you slow down.

I've blown my skiptooth chain twice this year already, luckily no injuries except a bit of wounded pride. In early July I was about 6 miles from home pedalling up the side of an overpass when it blew.........long walk of shame back home.
HMMM....?Why am I not surprised?

I've only broken one skip tooth chain before, and it was on my whizzer! Thankfully it was on startup, and not while on the brakes going down a hill....
Then I broke a chain on my columbia pedaling through sand, but I was asking for that.
Oh and I broke the crank on my schwinn B10 that time..
Somehow I have emerged unscathed so far.

I got the "violently" part right only I tried to push my foot into the ground. Bad idea!

Glad you're okay!
Just lost skin and pride. The chain is fixed and ready for a ride. Maybe tomorrow. It was a recently rebuilt and greased up hub. Without a chain it goes like hell down hill.
