Oh well, since this has been moved up the ranks from Allotment bike to Best bike
So today its had a service, I'm typing more for my benefit so I know when I did this
I've serviced the forks (they still have a topout clunk, might have to slip some thin rubber stop in the damper setup above the top out spring. I assuming it is that, it only happens in one leg.
At least I know it's not anything terminal.
The hairline cracks on the from hope suspension hub (developed a few years ago) seem to be holding up so doing well there.
Knackered RaceFace Signature FreeRide bottom bracket (my fault not looking after it) has been switched for a bodged together RaceFace Signature Ti one site lacks it's stop and seals
, (a RaceFace ISIS Turbine LP Silver chainset replaced the Shimano also a few years ago).
Lower headset bearing flushed and regreased. Need to replace at some point
Rear Shimano M770 hub serviced, still sounds a bit rough.
Chain rusty, must lube when being left all winter.
Need to take the decals of and get the nicer earlier decals put on.
Weighs in at 24.3lb with current setup
But as it's best it has to go below 24lb, so some posher tyres (have Evo Ron on rear and a performance Ralph on front)
Could do with 2.1/2.0 on the rear anyway as 2.25 is pushing it a bit
Fit an M952 rear mech, but it's not silver
but hopefully a fraction lighter and should work a bit better but a millisecond in shifting the the franken STX-RC with XT pulley cage and Ti hanger bolt)
Might try a 10mm shorter stem, remove some spacers to drop it a bit and chop the steerer down.
Switch to a Syncros Seatpost (even though I prefer the silver posts)
Switch to DB spokes on the front (currently PG) and replace with a new Hope hub (silver)
Chances of all of this or even a bit of this actually happening within the next year.... ?
