The rumour is Roger bike is now out of the sick bay, the campag shifter had failed and now one is campag and the other is shimano to get Audrey going for the trip away next week. the number of items that had to be fixed is 2 long to list here, but the best one is the rear tyre was down to the canvas. this must be down to the power output being put though the rear trying to push 2000 watts at all times.
Perhaps we should run a bike maintenance course within the club so that a basic understanding of what needs to be checked on the bike. Like tyre wear when the black stuff no longer exists on the tyre it is time to change them.
