Winter maintenance – essentials

I got around to fitted the new chain needed a few links removed but done (108 links/rivets on 10 speed 11-26), the new sprocket went on, but being a cheap skate I was trying to get a little longer from the bottom bracket (GXP – giga x pipe) then Sunday with the Whitestone wheelers, the legend Arthur Kelly had another break down this time bearings in the back wheel.

So forget it lasting a little longer, to be fair it had a slight amount of play and the chain wasn’t running very straight, the new BB did the job it really feels like a new bike

(for ref 7093 miles on Endomondo – that’s total not on this bike, just to see how many miles this GXP BB lasts for 🙂
