Little Things You Hate

Sweet, all anyone should see is a green and red blur flying through the air.

Assuming you wear your cape that is.

Good luck!
Thanks man! Feeling confident enough, only racing opens. Too long on the steep stuff and my hand starts cramping and locks up, putting all my weight on the bars through two fingers isn't enough

Fucking ouch! Hands take a while to heal and will always trouble you with pangs and aches in the cold.

My rims didn't come in today, I cut all the spokes out of my rims last night to lace the hubs ready to build wheels tonight. Leaving for nationals tomorrow. Got one rear wheel I can use that's cracked the whole way through. Could be an interesting weekend of riding.
Ouch. Please take the cape. Good luck.

Cheers boys.

I hate tubes. Just pinched one putting a tire on. Went to a mates and tubelessed it, so much easier. Big compressor, 4 seconds later it's done.

Companies that take your order. And then confirm that they have the stock when you ring to check. And then when you go to organise delivery inform you that they didn't get any in the colour you want and whoever told you they did was wrong. No apology or anything. Crap time to find the kids a new Christmas pressent.

Internal cable routing is evil.

I have internal frame and chain stay routing for the rear shifter.

Damit, do I butcher a brand new cable outer that came with new XT shifter to get the tube inside to make the internal recabling easier or does bunnings have tube which I could use? I've found that tubing from the hardware is tough and holds too much memory of being in a coil so would not be great for using to recable internal routes. Any suggestions of alternatives for tube aside from butchering an outer?

I'm over internal routing. After countless attempts to get good shifting to the RD, I decided to drill the ends out to run straight cable through and never looked back. Another weight weenie wank :rant:.

Some holes can't be drilled to do that, at least with my drill.
Not recommended for all frames, you might not get the cable through either because of the larger diameter, it was this or cable tie something to the outside for me. I'm not going to buy anymore frames with internal routing.

If I can bloody tie an Albright knot I can do this, with the right tubing that is!

I'm very scared I just came to Victoria to have broken my hand. Can't move it, size of a tennis ball, beer isn't helping enough. Hospital is across the road from the hotel at least
