Maintenance Help
#1
This is an appeal to any kind hearted souls out there who are willing to give me a hand sorting out my bike. It sounds like its been oiled with sand and I need to strip down various bits of it to clean properly and then reassemble safely! The headset sounds like the worst affected area but also I would like to check the sus linkages, BB and cassette. I will supply beer and cake obviously and be taking in-depth notes so that I can finally sort myself out for a change!!

The more the merrier assuming the assisting party has room to accomodate. If not you are welcome to come and stand in my lounge and help me screw it up!!

I work on my bikes in the kitchen and lounge, best place to do it, warm, food, tv etc, having a tiled floor helps when you spill suspension fluid though...
