Bikey's bearings broken

And other 'b' words (maybe not 'beluga'), some of them even publishable.

One minute I was hurtling up the A6 (I do like a good hurtle), overtaking all other cyclists, the next there was a grinding clunk (really) and the cranks were no longer moving properly.  I'm pretty sure it's the bottom bracket bearings, so I'll have to visit the bike shop this evening.

At least everything still rotates, and I didn't hear the distinctive sound of a broken bearing cup etching the frame, so was able to proceed to work, albeit being overtaken by all other cyclists, even the one on the unnervingly wobbly folding bike.
