Specialized Sirrus and Genesis Day One

Finally, a Specialized Bicycles Sirrus Comp that was in need of some TLC, and a Genesis Bikes Day One with a busted spoke. The Spesh had maybe been left a little longer than strictly wise as it needed a service, accompanied by a headset service and a new FULL SPEED AHEAD bottom bracket. The Genesis on the other hand broke a spoke on its back wheel (equipped with Shimano-MTB Alfine 8 speed hub). So, new spoke fitted, and the wheel trued up meant its owner could use it again.

Specialized Hardrock

Another bike that has seen lots of use, but perhaps not as much care as it warranted. This Specialized Bicycles Hardrock was treated to a new KMC Chain Europe B.V. chain, new SRAM MTB cassette, brake pads from Raleigh Bicycles and a bottom bracket from Shimano-MTB. This was all rounded off with an Annual Service and as a result is good to go.

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.

Specialized Crux Elite

Now on to a Specialized Bicycles Crux Elite. Part cyclocross monster, part road bike, some say this is the only type of bike you’ll ever need. SRAM road Apex groupset with FSA Gossamer crankset and SRAM road Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes, this is one sorted machine. An Interim Service, and a decontaminated pads and rotor and it was back with its owner (and now up for sale!)
