General Update

Posted 7th October 2012 at 05:05 PM by chris661

So I got my grades (AAAB in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology respectively) and now I'm at Sheffied University, studying Physics.

Plenty of green stuff nearby, so of course mountain biking is high on the agenda.

Well, it was.

After the past couple of rides (with a club), my bike is pretty much knackered.

The forks have emptied themselves of oil; I've managed to snap (there's only half of it left) one of the rings on the cassette; the largest chainring (at the front) got badly bent and now the metal is all soft; the bearings around the rear shock are almost gone; the rear wheel has developed some play (probably more dead bearings); the pedal bearings have gone; and the entire drive train is apparently >100% worn.

Happily, the Hope brakes are soldiering on.

The cost to put everything right: over 400, and they're gonna have to send the forks off to be fixed.

I think I might look...
