Getting there...

Apologies for the lack of posts. I’ve been super busy. Here’s some of what’s been going on:

Packed drop bags (more on that later).
Mr Whirly Cranks and lower gears have been added to the Pug.
The hubs and bb have been degreased and re-greased with low temperature grease.
I’ve replaced the old AC headset with a Chris King. It’s probably just as old but lasting much better. It also got the winterisation treatment.
Dismantled the pedals but couldn’t get the bearings apart. Hopefully they’ll be OK with normal grease.
Got some new clothing from Endura.

Still lots to sot out but getting there!

take the pedals to the workshop at work and ask em to drill and fit a grease nipple (Pace fork size ?) and fill em with that low temp grease, they are probably the things that need it most ;-)

It's not that easy- I could do that myself. I can't get at the bearings. I put the pedals in the freezer at -24, they got very stiff. I've tracked down some more bearings though so hopefully I'll get it sorted.
