Scene On The Trail: The Wear And Tear Of Sweat

Earlier this week my bike had some work done, some of that nitty gritty work that only gets done once in a blue moon, and we found something.

Any guesses?

Hint: It used to look like this.  Scale is only slightly bigger than a pencil eraser.

Two years ago one of these button magnets was bonded to my bike's bottom bracket to act as the pick-up for my SRM.  Two years of sweat, nutrition drink, road grime, and cleaning solvent left only an oxidized miniature hockey puck.  It disintegrates further each time I touch it.  I have no idea how I was still getting a strong signal from my SRM.

But more importantly: gross.
