What’s your least favourite bike maintenance job?
Got to be fitting and removing tyres with wire beads, numb thumbs 🙁
Front mechs another of my least faves too, On the middle ring mine will either rub on the inside of the mech (so i turn the barrel adjuster to compensate) then when i drop down to the highest gear after that it catches on the outside of the mech 😈Posted 9 years agoskidartistMember
I have a tourettes-like compulsive twitch that makes me violently punch platform pedal pins whenever I have to fit, adjust or remove anything around the cranks. A special favorite is, with the chain off, somehow whacking my knuckles off the pedal then have the cranks spin and the same pedal smack me in the leg. Add cold gritty mud into the equation ….. loving itPosted 9 years agoI_AcheMember
Only done it once but replacing the bearings on my Enduro has to be one of the two things I dont like doing but I didnt have the correct tools.
The other thing is putting the shock in the lower eyelet as it is a pain in the arse. I have even considered getting rid of the frame because its so much hassle.Posted 9 years agojfebMember
I am dreading needing to replace/fix the bearings and pivots on my Blur 4X, but mainly just because I have never done it and have the usual fear of the unknown.
Bleeding disk brakes gets on my nerves too – XT brakes seem to need 5 or 6 attempts to get it right (at least in my hands)Posted 9 years ago
