Def not. Should have said you hit the nail right on the head. To me night
rides makes the trail come alive and a lot people think I'm nuts going out by
myself in the dead of the night to go ride my bike.
2x systems? Most manufacturers seem to have dispensed with a provision for a
front mech. Shouldn't this be compared to pinion gearboxes especially if one
is going to start talking about unsprung weight etc? Just feel the article is
a bit dated.
a month ago pulled into the parking lot and found two guys fettling turns out
one of them had lost a brake caliper bolt before their ride even started,
couldn't help them really. They (don't ask) removed the headset bolt and used
that. Anyhow I kept thinking to myself how do you forget to screw on your
bolts after removing them. Fast forward one month later took my son out on his
newly built bike by dad-himself and kept hearing a rattling sound lo and
behold we are missing one M6 bolt on the front caliper.. we made do on the
ride. But swore never to upset the mtb-karma-gods again and now carry a spare.
Yeah as you say sod's law will always intervene on that one ride when you say
naw don't need this bit and somewhere along you will need just that bit you
chucked back in your spare/tool box. now thinking of carrying a spare gear
