                  I'm reckoning that 41mph wind is a myth, and will change by midnight tonight on forcast

                  • It does but have other stuff to do and the route will fill up with other people (spits) so would rather worse weather and lone ride TBH

                    Fettle update

                    Shiny chain



                    BIt of a feck about getting it back on but know its sussed the link is soooooooooo easy to open and close (PROTIP : careful if the chain is open that the two pieces of the connector dot fall out - easy to lose !!!)

                    Frowning chain in place



                    Gave the chain a good wipe down with these before fitting



                    Then a maiden run with the Mucoff Doc and finally some squirt lube - shes all ready to GO GO GO !

                    • Looks the business, and yeah ratrace free with rain > packed trails with angry ramblers.

                      On a completely white spirited chain I do a squirt drop on each link while peddaling backwards, then after 5 mins, tip bike upside down and to the same on the underside of links, then finish with MF cloth. Purely as there is zero lube left in chain after a spirit bath.

                      • Ps. have you got a clutch mech? If so you can lock it out so chain hangs loose with loads of play and get link on without any tension from the mech, orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr get an old metal clothes hanger, wire snip if down a bit, and curl both ends, you stick it through two bits in the chain to pull it together and hold the mech in tension, leaving two bits dangling down with loads O play to fit the link, orrrrrrrrrrrrrrr the link gets easy when you've done it several times
