Two pairs of brake pads, chain, set of brake and gear cables all picked up today from my local bike shop. Think this will be finished tomorrow morning :)

That's it 99% done now 8)

Chain, cables and brake blocks all fitted. Got a stubborn cable pinch bolt on the front brake, so waiting to see if it'll free up with a bit of gt85. If not may have to resort to a drill or see if there's a spare at my local bike shop I can have.

Surprised only one bolt out of the whole bike has given me any issues, given that the bike had been left outside for a while. I've removed all the bottle cage bolts and rack bolts which were a bit stiff, copper greased them and popped them back in. This should help prevent any future issues.

Just need the weather to fair up a little bit and then I can set the gears up and make sure everything's well. Then can get a few pictures before boxing it up and sending on to Rojo.

Quite a satisfying mini project and one that I hope will serve Rojo well :D
