After commenting in another thread that by going to SRAM 1x11 gearing I thought it would push my bike running costs up to more than what a decent sports car would cost to service, I thought I'd tot up what my bikes costs per year - I was a bit shocked, see below. This is on around 750 entirely off road miles per year.
Rear shock service - £75
Fork service £75 - although now I have a marzocchi 55 rc3, which I can do myself, so this saves a bit.
Brake pads x 4 sets - £60 - genuine shimano here, hate superstar/copy pads
Frame bearings - £40 - for a Mojo HD, so 8 x bearings from a generic bearing supplier.
Cassette - £35 - shimano XT
Chain - £20
Gear cable - £10
Tyres x 2 - £75
Total £380 assuming I dont break anything.
Is this a typical amount, or am I doing it wrong?
