"Seeing as how they can weigh in at around half the weight of many bikes, not wanting to carry a harrended steel chain hardly makes someone a weight weenie. I use a chain at work, but I'd hate to have to carry one around.
"1. The two crews explanation seems likely. Asphalt takes different equipment, which in a big operation probably also means different people and may also mean different unions. Now the question is why can't the two crews be scheduled so that the…"
