This morning I managed to finished my Christmas shopping, at least I hope I’ve finished it. Town wasn’t too painful thanks to it being a weekday morning, although I still despise shopping in real shops.
After lunch I took the Stiffee out round the Uni for a quick spin, the chainsuck didn’t reoccur, but the brakes are shockingly bad. The front one squeals continuously, and both brakes locked up after the descent from the downs back to the canal. I’ll have a go at bleeding the brakes and hopefully that’ll sort them out. Ideally I’d like to replace them with some Shimano ones, but that’s not really cost effective, I could steal the XT ones of the Craftworks, but that leaves me with brakes of the wrong size on each bike, so the E4s will have to do for the moment.
