        • The more I look at it I think google maps have mislabed Dela and that forest part thing is private, looks like a swanky yellow brick road goes right through it.

          • looks a bit odd, no idea what it is, maybe some kind of caravan park or a farm ?

            In other news, managed to squeeze an "Oh Matron" into my wiggle review

                    • Can I also ask, do you keep a spare cassette at all times?
                      I've only bought them when I need them. Ditto with chains, although I definitely see the wisdom in having a spare chain in stock

                        Got it free in mucoff sponge, cleaner pack. Its the worst thing i've ever used, only good for cable ends/spot in mech joints, theres probably better for this too but the long neck makes application easy for the hard to reach front mech spring.

                        On the chain, in one dusty summer ride it was the worst carnage I ever did see Tried in winter and its a no go product. Squirt seems best i've found, with purple extreme close second.

                        PS they should rename is MUCON ruin lube

                          Chains handy if fitted chain is proper filth and don't have time to do a white spirit bath, swaps out in seconds with wippermann link. One of those cassettes is a noisy XT one, went to Sram and it quietened down, not sure if combo of KMC chain and XT cass isn't good? as XT cassettes got good reviews. The others a spare.

                            • Squirt ordered!

                              New chain needs a bath in white spirit before application doesn't it?
