Expensive day out

Rob's picture

By Rob - Posted on 23 December 2007

After just 25 mins of riding through mud and sand in a downpour yesterday. To be fair, the jockey wheels (pulleys) were gone anyhow, but it was the brakes and rest of the drive train that took a real pounding.

See one of these sets of pads is still all bright and shiny - they were around two weeks old. Both ends were down to the last 10th mm or something. Sad

The chain didn't fair any better and managed to creep past the magic 1% wear mark at the same time. As there are several new chains and a new rear cluster the parts bin the existing set will get ridden into the ground before a full change comes.
