Servicing dropper post

Day 177 - photo a day 2017

Mon 26 June 2017

It's about that time again, time for interim service! On the list for this service is: dropper post and replace dropper cable, air can service on shock, forks lowers, bleed brakes and then anything else that looks/feels like it's about time. I'd never done the dropper before, it was …

My suspension fluid for my fork damper arrived today so I decided to sort that job out. Pretty simple one! Didn't do much else with the day...

Fri 28 April 2017

This weekend coming is the Dyfi Enduro. A big ride with over 1000 other riders in the Dyfi forest, mass start in Machynlleth. I thought that it was probably wise to give my bike a service beforehand. I managed to replace the really worn bottom bracket with a slightly worn …

New springs and pawls

Fri 21 April 2017

My new springs and pawls arrived today! This meant that I've been able to fix my rear wheel and ride this weekend. I'm still without the ebike but I popped into Summit Cycles to pick up a chain so asked how it was going at the same time. They're still …

Partially dismantled shock

Thu 20 April 2017

This evening I decided to give my mega shock a long, long, long overdue strip down and proper service. I've had the seal/orings kit for quite a while but didn't have the tools for removal of the aip cap and the adapter to reinflate the shock. I built the …

I wasn't feeling great today but I had a package due to be delivered there so headed in to work. In the end I took the afternoon off as the package was delivered. The package - some new pedals. Spank spoons. They're nice and big at 110x100mm, they actually come in …

Stripped down Levo shock

Day 39 - photo a day 2017

Thu 09 February 2017

As I've done \~800km on the levo now I felt like it was probably about (past) time to service the shock and forks. Nothing hugely involved, just an air can service for the shock and lowers for the forks. After doing the shock my bike developed an odd knocking word …
New bike tyres

Day 25 - photo a day 2017

Wed 25 January 2017

New rubber! I've been riding 3.0" purgatorys on the ebike and whilst theyre generally pretty good I wanted to try something more square in profile. Sooo, I bought some 2.6" purgatorys. I'm hoping the shoulders will cut into corners better and that they'll cut into mud a bit …
