Finally we have a Cannondale Bicycles Quick which was in need of a service. Lightly used, but stored in a damp garage over the winter meant the gears and brakes were out. The chain had also rusted quite badly. So, the chain was broken, degreased, cleaned, re-fitted and lubed. The rest of the bike was treated to an Intermediate Service meaning its ready for the impending Spring sunshine we all deserve!
Next up a Gt Bikes II Grade which sports a very natty 2×11 setup and full Shimano Cycling hydraulic brakes. Nice. It needed a bit of TLC though, and a fair bit of expenditure; replacement Shimano Road chain, Shimano Road cassette and a FSA big chain ring (Ouch!) Topped off with a trued rear wheel and an Intermediate Service to ensure everything was working as it should, it was back to mile-munching between East Lothian and Edinburgh.
Finally, some before and after shots of a Boardman that has a hard life transporting its owner from East Lothian in to a well-known Bank’s Head Office that used to be an asylum (naming no names). It needed a Premium Service, a new KMC Chain USA 10spd chain, a Shimano Road 105 10spd cassette and a SRAM road chain ring on top of that. As part of the Premium Service, the control cables are all replaced with spangly Fibrax Limited cabling, so clean, precise shifting is guaranteed.
