I was too unwell to ride today, which sucks! But I found it to be a great opportunity to give the bike a strip down and rebuild. I like to start at the back of the bike and work my way forward, cleaning, re greasing and tuning every component.
Stripping the cassette is always fun but My favourite part is always re building the rear hub.
Mine is a sealed bearing twin star DT Swiss so once its cleaned out the best oil to use (that is cheap!) is the same stuff you use in the transmission of your car.
