Preparing the bike

Originally uploaded by Dawnriser

This morning I’ve taken the bike apart, cleaned and oiled it in
preparation for the Yorkshire Dales next week.
It’s a dirty job of course, but the layer of old grease, oil and
general muck that had built up this summer has gone and bits that were
“gungy” are clean.
The bike is a Scott Roadster S1 frame and forks with S3 bits – due to
a partial upgrade when the frame started to corrode in the guarantee
period. It’s an alloy bike so pretty rigid. That’s what I like about
it. I can feel the road and every ounce of effort reaches the wheels.
No suspension or flexing frame to absorb the power in between.
The sponsorship total online is now £1116 and I received an email this
morning telling me about another £100 that had come to the Riding
Lights Office
. Thanks for your support.
Packing next.
