so today after my ride i decide to do abit more on the proflex, have hit some issues though
first thing was i didn't like the chainset i had for it, just looked crappy. so yesterday i had gone to my old place of work and convinced myself to buy a dues xc raceface chainset, not for the proflex but for my 07 clockwork, the idea being that then the chainset off the clockwork could go on the ST4, and the evolve xc from the ST4 could then go on the proflex, make sense?
anyhow i started fitting the chainset to the proflex only to discover that there were a couple of spacers missing so that needs sorting but worse than that i found an issue with the shock assembly
basically it undid itself. this bike has a very basic damper unit, i had noticed that the suspension seemed very stiff, turns out someone has been farting about with the damper, filled it with so much oil that it had locked out!!
so i tried bleeding it but i got it sort of working but i'm not happy with it so i'm gonna chuck it at gary at the shop to have a look at it to see what he thinks, although he'll probably throw it back at me and say don't bring that crap in here!! although he did help rebuild my mag 20's yesterday!
here's where i got to
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
