Thats odd. I was a bike mech for a couple of years when I was young free and studdly and I tried fitting a new cable to a Gripshift X-ray the other week and it took me ferkin ages!!

Maybe I was just a very bad bike mech! :oops:

We once had a customer who wanted a KHS ti frame. The only one left in his size was a complete bike that we'd built. Four mechs on one bike, under ten minutes later he had his frame :lol:
