about a month back I was westbound on the Hope Princeton when a sloppy looking Harley in front of me dropped a roll of fishing line.
I watched it unravel 50 or 60 feet before it nailed me in the left shin and got a little wound up in my rear wheel. Pulled over and did the best I could to get it all out. Since then no problems.
Yesterday on a trip over the Salmo-Creston (another great highway for wheel issues) I noticed my wheel was not spinning freely. I stopped and could hardly push it on the flat. When I checked the wheel I found some line hanging out. Managed to full another foot or 2 of line out. It became a bit less resistant. I began to slowly ride again and resistance got worse.
As I began to pull over again I heard a break/snap and the wheel is now spinning freely again. My questions:
1) Who the hell drops fishing line?
2) should I be concerned about some catastrophic bearing failure etc from the stress?
Thanks for any help
