surprise soggy ride to gmc, ugh, cold and dry is indeed preferable
Calling all you mechanically-minded bottom bracketeers...
When changing from 4th sprocket to 5th sprocket, it doesn't happen immediately, and might take up to a couple of turns of the cranks to effect the change, and if I click again, it'll immediately shift to the 6th sprocket. It's only from 4th to 5th, and not all the time. Chain is at 0.75% stretch, so needs to be changed, and I know it's a link or two too short, rear derailleur cable was changed about 6 weeks ago. Should I just bite the bullet, get the bike up on the stand, change the chain, make sure it's the correct length and re-index? Or do I need a new bike?
I didn't realise you communted on your bicycle sungod. I imagined you had a driver pick you up, and take you to gmc via the Wolseley, where you breakfast on much coffee and warm pastries of the highest quality, whilst perusing a freshly ironed new York times.
Thanks chaps. Excellent guide Pinno.
Yes, I pull away in the 4th sprocket, then most riding is done in 5,6,7. That'll be the part of the cassette that's worn. There well probably also be a ton of censored on the BB guide, given filthy roads. I'll give it a proper clean and a re-index, and if that doesn't work, I'll have to dig into the spares box.
Also new bike. Must work on making space for that. I fancy custom steel with etap.
