Specialized Allez Sport

Next up, a cracking Specialized Bicycles Allez Sport. An Interim Service, a drivetrain clean, the headset stripped and re-lubed and both brake calipers cleaned and lubed. The bike successfully completed the Tour de Lauder last weekend (well done to its rider…the conditions sounded challenging to say the least), although it did suffer two broken spokes so will need more work in the coming week.

Cannondale Quick

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!


GT II Grade

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.

Boardman Comp LTD

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.
