Greetings all
I've recently bit the bullet and purchased a Giant SCR2 on line from Devre cycles at £465. I'm very happy with the purchase and the price, however, it was down to me to assemble the bike.
1/the front brakes seem to stick and even though i try to center them after a couple of pull they tend to stick again :(
2/the front triple chainrings are noisy in changing up and down. do they need indexing?
3/ went out for a try and was doing about 30 riding down hill when the the bike felt as if it went into what i can best describe as a bit of wobble!!! the road surface was poor. thank god I didn't come off. i eventually pulled over and examined the bike, all seemed in order. i have since re-tightened the front wheel. any ideas please.
4/ lastly can anyone recommend a site where i could get hold of workshop manuals for shimano tiagra gears/brakes.
thank you in advance for any response i may get.
