Pedalit.cc Guide to keeping your ride clean!

Although cycling is an athletic sport, it is also very much an equipment based sport too, and basic habits in bike care and maintenance are just as much a part of the ride as sweating up a climb. The rule is simple, NEVER ride a dirty bike.

A dirty bike has a higher maintenance cost than a clean one and a poorly maintained bike is more likely to leave you sitting road side waiting for a lift home. 

So here are the PEDALIT wash…

SS MTB Brake pads

Strava distance for this bike is now 7,956km, and if it's not on Strava, it's bullshit !

I haven’t ridden this bike for a while because I haven't been fit enough to push the gearing. Now that I'm a bit fitter and it has been raining I'll ride it some more. It's my only bike with mud guards... The brake pads had worn down to the metal inside again so I replaced front and rear this morning. My last two pairs of cheap Chinese brake pads. I think I'll try something different next time…

Victoria to be last last on passing rule on East Coast!

The NSW Coackroaches are finally catching up to good old Queensland and South Australia not to mention ACT.

http://roadsafety.transport.nsw.gov.au/campaigns/go-together/index....

Passing laws for motorists to protect cyclists. About time.

What about Victoria - the shame, the embarissment of being last to do the sensible thing.

Stolen

My Wife's 2015 Merida Speeder was stolen from outside St Vincent's hospital between 11:00 and 11:45 on the 13th of October.  She has a good quality lock but didn't lock it properly.  It would have looked locked at a quick glance so some scrotum of a human was out to pinch a bike!

This is the second bike stolen in just over a year, very pissed off!  The first bike had the lock cut so again, someone had the intent to steal.

The bike is black and grey with orange…

Stolen: 2014 Wilier Treistina Rossano (small) dark grey- Footscray, Victoria

On Saturday 26th April my newish Wilier Tresitina Rossano  was stolen using bolt cutters from a secure garage in an apartment block in Moreland Street,  Footscray.  

I have since been advised by the body corporate that over 20 bikes have been stolen over the year from our underground carparks.

I bought the bike new from Green grocers in Goulburn NSW in last October 2014..  I have recently changed the seat to a more comfy black touring seat.

This bike is one of a kind in…

STOLEN: Scott Addict R2 in Hawthorn, Melbourne

Hi all, 

I'm new to this page so I hope this is the right place to share!

My beloved 2009 Scott Addict R2 was stolen for my locked garage in Hawthorn in the last 2 days. It's a small frame, black and white in colour (which is pretty rare in Australia, it was purchased in the US). 

More than anything, it's just my favourite bike and I'm gutted :(

I'm posting here in case anyone sees it or comes across it - any info would be appreciated!

My number is…

Single Speed Update

My Strava odometer says 5217km.

I haven't done anything except ride it since I put the bigger front chainring on.

Oh, I replaced the brake levers and cables. A positive aspect of leaving it way too late before replacing your brake cables is that they feel so smooooth. Like a new bike.

I'm thinking about changing my handlebars. The ones on it ar "Gnar Bars" with an outward bend at the end. I think they might me giving me sore wrists and I have a spare nice wide "normal"…

The need for speed

Lately I've found myself spinning my head off more than grinding my arse off so I decided to try a higher gear.

My rear hub will not take smaller than a 16t freewheel - BMX style screw on thing.

I could change the hub but 135mm integrated freewheel hubs are expensive and might be an option if I want to go higher oneday.

So decided to upgrade my front sprocket from 44 to 46t which in turn prompted a chain swap. I already had two joining links and even though a third would…
