    Are you and @hippy both doing boiling water from the kettle on the chain before you put it in the wax pot, or just straight into the wax pot off the bike?

    I may test out much shorter intervals before changing, as I've been getting some corrosion spots over the last 9 months waxed when replacing once it squeaks.

    Nice! 350km is a lot less than I'm getting from speedway, but it sounds like the wax is far cheaper.

    Are you changing chains because it starts squeaking, or just proactively?

    I moved during lockdown, so not a clue first hand. My club mates say it is awesome, though

    You were not wrong! I just got an email from wiggle saying the old bolt is not coming back in stock, and an email from Condor announcing the new one almost at the exact same time!

    Wahoo have said they cant repair my unit, the best they can do is give me 20% off a new unit. Crappy response, but I'm tempted to use that on the new version to get the colour screen and faster processor.

    Ah, thanks! Looks like they're upping the price quite significantly, though. If they can't repair it then it is worth me thinking about whether to wait for the better, more expensive new one, or get the older cheaper one if I still can.

    Sorry, I clearly had the Roam in my head as I typed that reply. It is one of the early Elemnt Bolt units that has broken. I haven't been able to find anywhere with a Bolt currently in stock in the UK?

    Anyone else have a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt that has broken tabs on the mounting puck? This is the 2nd time it has happened to me in 4 years. I will ask but I doubt Wahoo will replace it as I'm long out of warranty.

    Has anyone tried the aftermarket puck replacements? I'm just not too keen on the unit sitting proud of the mount.

    It also looks like wahoo have discontinued everything other than the roam? That's a decent bit more than I'd like to pay.... are they any good for money, or are there equivalent garmin units that perform better for less money?

    Do wiggle no longer do £10 off your first order for new customers who sign up for the newsletter? I just created a new account hoping for that, but haven't had an email through with a discount code in a week ...

    I moved up recently to just north of Derby. Feel free to DM me. I think there's a few others about judging from the peak district rides thread. You are gonna love riding round here!
