    • In fact I have an earlier version of these socks somewhere, forgot all about! May have to try again, been wearing these 10 decathlon toast factories last few sub 5*c rides, not waterproof though.


      Might try and get a nightride in this week, tomorrow looks dry and sunny, weekend a bit washout at the moment.

      • Working from home tomorrow - may just sneak out

        It would appear I have developed an annoying click / knock coming from the bottom bracket area when there is any weight on the crank (not happening when I lean forwards / take full weight off the pedals)

        Any ideas ?

        • BB got water in it, need regreasing.

          Take crank arm off, pack some grease in, reattach crank arm. If its a SHimano Hollowtech you need a 2 plastic tool, super easy to service though.

              • Looking forward to a sneaky cold ride again this weekend, looks like some small windows of opportunity Saturday morning, and Sunday late afternoon, where its not absolutely monsooning it down. Quite enjoyed the lung piercing cold, light mizzle, snow capped mountains, wood smoke in the air last ride. Anyone else getting out?

                    NFT = the real deal, putting these "hobby cyclists" to shame

                    • Yessir!

                      NFT has to do the commute run whatever the weather, i'm a little more selective when leaving the warm abode

                          OH LAWD. First one to fall

                          Set 2 hr target on Strava, hell even 1 hr target

                          • I will inspect the wife today and try to fix the front brake, that should help with the willpower

                            • Well, found the culprit for the reduction in braking performance




                              Before and after, more glazing than dunking donuts

                              I also pumped the pistons out a bit and cleaned them with toothbrush/shop towel and got most of the grime, one of the pistons wasn't moving much so I've freed it up now.

                              Overall endorsed improvement in braking

                              • Right get out and ride now, need to see some Strava action on the boards


                                Look contaminated and uneven wear previously, perhaps sticky piston.
