I've yet to see an external BB damaged from a shell not being faced. The bearings all have a bit of float on the axle which protects them from loading up with such small misalignment. The threads themselves prevent more than small misalignment occuring.

All the failures we see are down to two things. Moisture and terrible bearing fit.

Hi all,

I've heard that there is someone reliable who can service rear shocks in the North Island. It's a Trek Remedy DRCV shock. I've done the air can in the past but I need the damping/internals done. Anyone know contact details?


thanks,
p

Sram XO 10 speed read mech (2011, type 1, non clutch). Is the B? tension spring (see picture below) replaceable and a Sram service part?

Why does it have to be the north island? Overnight freight between islands has been a real thing for at least 20 years.

He doesn't want it to come back all full of indignation and South Island inferiority complex I guess.
