Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. Something a little different.
  2. I've had it once or twice on a ride with my Edge 130
  3. well he did say windy windy, so it could be both
  4. based on the tales on this forum you need and armed escort to ride in CPT, last time I rode there I had 18 000 of my closest friends riding with me to make sure nothing happens
  5. I dont disagree with you, just shocked at the pricing. But then on the other hand the equivalent bicycle is setting you back close to 300k it makes the 'Blade look like a bargain.
  6. Yeah I look at the bikes on the floor here and when there is a 600 it always just seems to me to be that bit better looking as a package than the bigger bikes. But the prices of bikes makes my eyes water, top of the rang 'Blade is close to 500k. And then there is the "me" safety factor. I know how I push the limits of my abilities on a bicycle, i'd be dead in a week if I got a motorised bike.
  7. I must say my last couple of rides have been pleasant w.r.t. motorists too. With a number of them actually waiting for me to pass when they did no need to.
  8. There was one parked on the floor here for a few months, repsol colours. I lusted after that bike.
  9. WeBuyCars operate very different to a normal dealer, they are very much a "voetstoots" kind of operation and dodge the comebacks by providing a Dekra report. A normal dealer trading in or buying in a bike/car will want to make sure they are not getting a problem vehicle, so if they are doing their jobs properly will go over the vehicle very carefully. They really dont want to have to deal with these kind of comebacks.
  10. There are a number of sides to this. The original owner - He should have declared any accident damage to the bike shop on selling the bike to them. Maybe he did and they ignored him. The bike shop - they are the "pros" here, they should have picked up any accident damage even if the seller did not disclose. They should also have documentation to the effect of the seller disclosing any accident damage or not, this is their recourse with the seller. The buyer (you) - you did not buy a new bike, there will be wear and tare and scratches etc., but like you stated, you asked and were not informed, so either the bike shop did not know or they were hiding it The law - CPA is "supposed" to be there for this kind of thing. But give the bike shop reasonable time to sort out the issues first before heading down what is probably going to be a waste of time.
  11. Yep, that’s why I mentioned the airpressure. rhe different pitch threads sounds like a good idea.
  12. where did you get it from that it came with lube ?
  13. It doesnt come with lube, just the empty bottle. For something like you describe above its ideal. I do wonder though, how would you get rid of the dust on the chain first before applying lube ? surely applying lube onto a dusty chain is a big no no
