    need a new rear rotor after bending my vented disc going over the handlebars in a rock garden. £80 to get a new hope vented disc!! f**k that i'll just a "normal" floating one for the rear which will be plenty good enough and only £35 too.
    a bit short on cash too after getting some body armour.
    the house is a mess and the parents are back tuesday (after a month away admittedly)
    could do with some female attention these days.
    got a hell of a lot of digging/fine tuning to do on our new jumps

    on the good side. i still really love my bike and can't wait to test it some more on DH and freeride stuff. XC i can do easily now so happy with that
    our new jumps are truly gorgeous. will get a thread up to show them off asap.
    still love my bike too

    Get a ten quid ebay rotor for riding when you are likely to damage it, and a floating one for showing off! ;-)

    yeh i agree with supersonic just get a cheapish one. £80 is very steep imo for a rotor :?

    i have been trying to do stoppies and get my endos perfect as they have always been abit cr*ppy. but after about 100 times of doing it my front brake has gone abit soft and not working fully working (shimano xt disc brakes) and when i pedal hard either on flat land or uphill the gears skip alot and results in me either getting my pedals dug in to my shins which are now cut in many places or my knee batting in to my stem and getting massively bruised :? :x :evil: :x :evil:
  • supersonicsupersonic Posts: 82,708 Lives Here
    Could be worn chain/rings/cassette or even a slipping freewheel. Not just need adjusting?
  • cosworthcosworth Posts: 66
    i had it serviced a few month ago and they put a new chain, new xt cassette and checked over the gears fully, i have had a mess about adjusting them and nothing seems to work :evil: i spent £180 on it not long ago which was a service, new xt rotors and most new gearing, dont know whats happened but its pi$$ing me off, legs are covered in cuts and bruises. atleast ive got my endos sorted :wink:
  • supersonicsupersonic Posts: 82,708 Lives Here
    Be suprised if it has won that quick, but saying that, depends on conditions and XT rings are not know for longevity.
  • cosworthcosworth Posts: 66
    i think ill take it back to my lbs (bikescene) and see what they say cant stand my knees/shins getting battered anymore.....
    thanks supersonic :D:D
  • Girlfriend insisted on coming round and waking me up drunk at 4:30am, I'm not good that early in the morning.
    Lost the allen key I need to tighten my cranks.
    Whole bike needs a proper overhaul but I don't have any money. It's just loads of little things like new cables, brake pads, tyres etc. but it adds up quickly.
    Trails near me don't drain well and are likely ruined after the rain we've had this week.
    After 5 years I'm finally leaving uni in 4 weeks and I know I'll miss it.
    After 5 years at uni I now owe over £20,000
    Bit of an odd one, but I'm over organised and have too much time left to finish off the uni work I have to do. Don't work well unless I'm under pressure so it's difficult to find motivation.
    We've run out of washing up liquid.

  • I/'m a right miserable censored but despite working all weekend and working all early shifts this week (meaning I slept for 13 hours yesterday to catch up and still another early day today!!)... wearing my fave shirt, had a shower, listening to some nice house music in my lovely clean living room with my wife at my side - I can't think of a single negative thought.

    You may now resume being grumpy :)

    Supersonic, sorry to hear about your woes.

    Check the roof of your mouth again. I'm no doctor but you might find the stringy skin is cheese?

    My current bike is falling apart...need to get it seen too but dont have time...

    Keep having to dip into my new bike fund to pay bills and bunk like riding buddy has messed his ankle up and isnt up for some proper riding.

    My dog decided he likes rolling about in censored and now my house stinks.

    Lost one of my gloves - so need to buy a new set.

    People drive past the shop laden with bikes going to CC and mocking me!

    my showers broke, and my bath takes 3 days too fill - so I am a bit humming atm.

    and i've ran out of chocolate fingers :(

    Spent £1400 on a holiday at the weekend

    Bust my rear hanger on Thursday (New hanger, chain and jockeys)wife not happy (should've used the money for holiday spending!)

    Rear hydraulic disc on the 'dale is as spongy as Bob's pants and refuses to be mended (even after several visits to LBS)

    Can only keep 2 out of 3 bikes running at any one time

    1 out of 3 bikes always needs money spent on it

    Riding tonight :D (hope I don't break anything!)

    Can't get no sleep (or riding), 2 week old baby in the house and I've got wait at least a year before I'm allowed to buy him a bike. Just hiding in here for a few mins till his nappy gets mysteriously changed by the nappy changing fairy :lol: .
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    I've bought a new bike....ouch - result
    Can I buy a new bike?...No - no result
