    Thank you for advice a month or so ago to grease the bolt that holds suspension block, it did the trick with the intermittent squeaking.

    I’m going to order a Joseph Kuosac block from SJS which I think will be a nice little upgrade, are there any other economical little upgrades that won’t break the bank I should order at the same time?

    Which London bike shops are recommended for working on Kinetics/alfine bromptons? I need to get on top of maintaining the bike now that I am putting down a good amount of miles a week but may treat it to a proper service first.

    Gears have started slipping in the mid-range and I think both my break and gear cables are a bit worn out.

    Yes quite alot of bounce I reckon, definitely when I am setting a good pace

    Do you reckon I should investigate harder bushings?

    I have an intermittent squeak, which seems to comes and go - for example often it’ll be quiet on the way to work and noisy on the way home, It seems to follow the cadence of my cycling and after initially presuming it was pedals/bottom bracket I’m now pretty sure it is the pivot or rear dampener.

    Any tips for things to keep on top of in terms of regular maintenance and or squeak reduction?
