Popped into LBK yesterday, and they seem friendly enough. £50 gets you a year's worth of off peak workshop time. You're not allowed to bleed hydraulics there which is a pain.
Dropout inserts arrived from Planet X, but without screws. £45, and not including these is bullshit. Eyeballed it, and ordered M4x12mm from Amazon.
Groupset (R7020) arrived yesterday, which lead to any inevitable array of questions.
Where are the bloody olives?
Not an 'overhead in Waitrose', but a misunderstanding about the hydraulic brakes. The levers come separately from the calipers which have hoses installed. Everything comes pre filled. I squeezed the lever, and found myself covered with mineral oil. Fuck.
DON'T SQUEEZE THE LEVERS.
On the videos I saw the process to install is clamp the in supplied block, trim to length with sharp blade, hammer in the end, slide end and olive over tube, insert and tighten. On this kit the end and olive are already in the lever, so you just trim, install the hose insert, push it into the lever and tighten. Shimano are trying push their magic tool so don't supply the block to hold the hose. Anyone know where I can get hold of one?
How do I run the cables?
The groupset comes with pre trimmed cable sleeve, split on the downtube. The frame has partial guides (see link). Do I need have the full cable run sleeved? My old Tiagra had tensioners at the levers. Do I need these with the 105?
