Overhaul completed. Pretty much finished tinkering with this bike now with my daily workhorse. Riding through the snow and winter without a proper service had ruined the chain, BB and brake pads. Really happy to finally replace the old smelly fizik bar tape with the Rapha brevet one which are way more comfortable.
I do miss the bar flare though on my old bars as this new Thomson cross bar is very similar to a road bike compact straight drop, hopefully this will only be a minor adjustment.
After this new service the bike does finally more dialled in and smoother, though the replacement disc pads do feel a little soft and not as sharpe as the swissspot one. However I’m just nick picking, great to be riding the daily workhorse again with it new lease of life for the spring/summer season.
