Nothing makes a bike shift crisper than a good clean and lube. All the little chatters and slop just seem to disappear.
yupper! It really wasn’t looking that bad, but I’m always surprised at how much smoother everything feels after I get out the degreaser, rags, and brushes.
Just cleaned 6 months of commuting gunk off the 1×7 last weekend and I have to concur. It really helps!
I’ve got over 4K on this drivetrain. I suppose I should have the shop go over things this winter to see if I need to replace any parts. All the teeth look good and the cables have been replaced… I don’t sense any chain stretch…but just to be safe.
4k is really good, especially if that’s the same chain! My trucker is ready for a replacement once it starts shifting sloppy. The last time I tried to replace the chain it didn’t mesh with the cogs in back.
