Seen as most of my work colleagues take their summer hols this time of year got the bike out and gave her a good clean, chain cleaned and lubed and then adjusted ready to enjoy some of this sun at the weekend, hopefully Saturday 🤞 c'mon England don't let me down!

Scottoiler fitted as well.

I'll degrease it at the weekend and take a better look

I'll email them and see what they say. I don't even have any proof of purchase though because they were included with the bike

Been replacing a broken brake reservoir. Went ok, but in pumping out the pistons to drop the fluid level I found the caliper seals had failed.

But impressed.

I don't have any and I need the bike at 6am. Lucky the local mechanic had some seals and is willing to blow the pistons out and fit them.

I hadn't planned on this extra cost though.

Still better to do both jobs at once, then having to do it all over again.

I didn't get much choice in the matter.
