Bike Service Time

I had been noticing some issues with the bike lately, namely the headset was feeling really rough, and a little play in the gearing.

So I took it down to the excellent VeloHeads to have it looked at. Turns out it requires a new headset, Chain, and Rear cassette. I think the headset was down to me washing the bike down regular with a spray gun. Not a massive heavy flow but just a shower head. Turns out the bearings in the headset didn’t like that too much…

Nothing too major, and to be expected with the hard work its done. Its still on the original parts, so I’m surprised they lasted this long.

I’m hoping, when I get it back, it’ll feel like a new bike after the TLC given to it..


JanuaryWell, thats January done and dusted. Only 18 rides, Just over 12 hours and 128 miles covered.

It could of been better, there where days where I could of ridden more, and days where I could of ridden but did’nt.

However, I have conquered a few goals in January, a few hills that used to scare me have been climbed, a new distance record set, and a general feeling of health improving, almost on a daily basis. And of course, my new favourite route to ride.

So it wasn’t all bad..

But I think my bike could do with a bit of TLC, so I’m going to book it into the excellent VeloHeads, and have it serviced.
