Last minute mechanical. Just as I was happy getting into the zone within the first few metres my new chain is jumping on the older more worn cassette. A cassette that isn’t exactly standard, 11-42 SRAM 11 speed. A quick Google and a few phone calls got me to the Bike Institute for emergency repairs
No problem they said, a phone call and they’d located another cassette nearby.
Just waiting for the parts to arrive and in pops another TAW rider Karen Tostee with a tyre rubbing. Looks like the Bike Institute will have a busy day. We’re the fifth or sixth riders to pop in for last minute bits!
