Next up a Merida Matts 20 that had received a decent cleaning regime, but unfortunately, time had caught up with it. A new Raleigh Bicycles rear wheel, Shimano cassette, KMC chain, Shimano bottom bracket and cabling from the guys at Fibrax Limited means this bike can now tackle the worst the canal tow path can throw at it.
It’s been a busy old week at Andy’s Bike Clinic, so it’s time for a long overdue catch-up. First off we have Merida Juliet. Always a quality piece of kit, MERIDA BIKES produce excellent frames and full bikes, with good quality kit. This particular Juliet leads a busy life transporting its owner from Bathgate to Edinburgh and back again. A full Premium Service was requested, so everything was stripped off the bikes, cleaned, lubricated, and re-fitted. The hubs were fully serviced and the cabling replaced with nice, shiny new Fibrax Limited inners and outers. XLC parts took care of the new brake pads, whilst a SRAM MTB cassette and KMC Chain USA chain were also slotted on. Great bike, now fitted with great quality replacement components.
