Ever start stripping a bike down for some good TLC and regret it half way through?
It turns out, the spacers on the top shock bushing are essentially non-existent, some pretty major wear over the winter. Headset bearings are starting to feel a tad crunchey, bottom bracket won't be lasting much longer, rotors are heavily worn, and could use replacing, new brake pads required (I expected this though and ordered some new ones a few weeks ago) and a full new set of frame bearings are required. Ohh, and I need to do a seal service on the rear shock.
Now, who was it wished it on me for my bike to need lots of working doing?
