    • After the brake failure and bleed at Degla I ordered some new pads



      Whipped the back set out; they've seen better days



      ​​​​​​​

      New set

      ​​​​​​​

      And snugly in place

      ​​​​​​​

      And front

      ​​​​​​​

      ​​​​​​​Hopefully get chance to try them out over the weekend

          Yeah, me too. At least I did with Treksy. I've not done a pad replacement on Whytney yet.
          Talking of which, I'm broken. I've been having some issues with my right leg going numb for a while and its affected my power, now my back has properly decided to give up the ghost.
          I'm still hoping to get back on the steed, but just as the weather turns nice-ish, I'm forced into further down time.
          Sadface.

          • Cru that sucks Perfect career though to make a self diagnosis, what do you think?

            Is it only when riding, or just general life and walking about?

                It's day to day.
                Actually, its been a few years, but gradually worsening. I've been trying to self diagnose for a while, but ultimately think it's something that will keep getting worse.
                The back pain I am sure will improve, the leg numbness won't.

                I WILL be back on the bike, especially after a 47 minute drive home, for a 6 mile journey.
                I'm thinking of restarting the bike commute. I figure the 30 mins it takes me on the bike has to be better for the old spine than 47 minutes raging at traffic.
                And 60 minutes total cycling a few days a week will be good for the ticker too.

                • Looks like a cracker JTD, can't wait for the picture laden ride report

                  Commute sounds like a plan Cru and hope your back / leg improves matey

                  Wheels spin freely with no catching of pads, but I did wedge the calipers right back before fitting them

                  Had a little pootle out with the family earlier but youngest got a puncture 1/2 way round and although I had a pump, no repair kit, so was a slow roll / push back

                  Felicity had a trip to the LBS yesterday for a new cassette / chain and indexing - gone from an 11-25 to an 11-32 for a bit more granny ring action

                  Before



                  After



                  Hmmmm, shiny

                  • Big ring still cant hide the dork disc!

                    Wife was pressed into service this week mon-wed for commuting due to vehicular difficulties. Was a shock to the system (arse) but part of me enjoyed it

                        My bro just took his Trek Domane roadie from 28 to 32, loves it, says he can now get up the steepest hills in the area without having to stand up and grind the knee caps down, just sits and spins! He also got a power meter, by Garmin which looks epic, DO WANT A POWER METER MAAM, just need prices to come down

                        Very unlike you not to have toolkit, especially after chesh ring pulls all the tools including kitchen sink out the bike itself meme!

                          CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZ where the hell have you been?

                          I'm guessing stuck in some game addiction or Witcher III type quality?

                            It does sound like one of those problems that could be fixed by doing more walking/biking, biking possibly due to the low impact nature.

                            Use it or lose it type issue? Finger crossed for you, *waits for all the glorious Strava mileage to appear!*
