....I was going to give riding a miss this weekend by was tempted out by the mid afternoon sun. What an error!!
....boggy gloop on most BWs (I love horses really :wink:). Generally crap conditions so first thoughts were correct
....hit one water filled rut at speed only to find that water was almost as deep as my wheel. Only just made that one!
.....rear shifter brakes at furthest point from home (in top gear)
....two punctures on ride back (forgot tyre levers but got tyres off ok, phew)
....long road ride home in top gear. So that is what SS is all about!!!!
Spent a few minutes in Park Tools website but can find the bit about rear shifter. Looks like the plastic barrel at the end of the cabling has snapped. Not sure if that is a DIY or LBS job. Sadly, for me, probably the latter!
