im sat with a very sore left knee just below the cap on the outer part

no its not single speed strain

i was upstairs having a pee . started to walk downstairs and got a searing pain , ended up shuffling down on my bum and hopping to the sofa :oops:

its not as painful now but still a bit iffy

what are the chances eh :roll: :(


i think my knee is revolting against todays gearing change ( i havnt even ridden Today , all day has been spend stripping , cleaning and changing parts )

and while im having a moan

how can a 165mm disc fit fine on the rear for at least a month . remove the wheel for a clean and now the disc rubs the top of the caliper :roll: :?

are the floating discs any good ?

Check the end of the axle hasn't ovalised. Seen it before when a disc has started to rub on top of the caliper. When you have replaced the wheel the orientation of the axle may have moved

Sounds like a knee strain,if it persists have a GP take a look.
