    Chain reaction cycles

    Having had similar experiences with other stuff from CRC and elsewhere in the past, the "after market packaging" is what you're calling "original packaging" - the retail packaging for a set of brakes purchased aftermarket. What you've bought, and typically why they sell it cheap, is OEM surplus...

    Plastic bags, climate change, renewable energy,

    It seems to have a decent rep and is a decent aggregator but like all things it depends on who actually comes through to quote. I put through a request last year and had a couple of companies get back in touch - one quoted only from aerial views and didn't respond to questions from me for...

    Plastic bags, climate change, renewable energy,

    This is like the Andrew Tate is good for fitness tips argument. Petersen is a complete fucking gronk. He might have a "huge academic background" but the fact that he spouts the shit he does means no-one gives a fuck. It's not disingenuous or ignorant, it's just that he doesn't have a right to a...

    Rocky McRockface due to...?

    Charlotte's at Red Hill was also a stage on the national enduro champs course which ran in October in pissing rain... so it's copped a beating and probably less maintenance than some others there given it's also a bit off the main trailhead. But yes probably a bit of both. Plenty of people...

    @link1896 tongue in cheek tag originally obviously but sorry to hear things are complicated. looking forward to seeing you up and running. Yeah it’s hard, goodwill in brand name and client base is valuable but for a small appointment-only workshop that’s going to be less transferable as you say...

    Where's Creaky?

    If you're getting a creak that you can't replicate in the stand and it's timed with cadence, I'd be looking at BB, crank, crank bolts, pedals to start with. And maybe the freehub, noting you said you cleaned/greased the cassette, but it's possible to get dust working its way in to make the...
