Broke a spoke on the non-drive side on the rear Mavic Ksyrium Equipe on this morning’s Freo Wheelers group ride. When I got the rim back from Mercer Cycles I was advised that the rim had hairline fractures and hence I retired the rim immediately. I have used a spare rim until March 27, 2010.

Wembley Cycles replaced the shifter cables for me today at a cost of$36.00. I really planned to replace these at 10,000 km but still got it done before they broke, which is handy I guess :).

After my morning ride, a very noisy one, I find the rear cluster was loose. Upon closer inspection I found the lock ring had come free. I removed, checked over and refitted the cluster and re-tensioned the lock ring. To get an idea on how to do this, this video at the BicycleTutor.com is helpful.

500 km service and bike fit. The bike fit involved:

  • Fine tuning my cleat position and
    installation of new cleats;
  • Fine tuning the seat position;
  • Found my left hand shifter was lower
    than my right hand shifter, which has probably been the cause of my
    sore left hand;
  • Moved the angle of the handle bars
    up a bit as I tend to ride on the hoods rather than the drops at the
    moment. This resulted in the hoods being closer and more comfortable
    for me. So I it looks like I will no longer need to change the stem for
    90 mm one;
  • Found the rear cluster was not tight
    and then discovered the washer that should have been there (between the
    hub and cluster) wasn’t, so got that sorted and the rear gear change is
    much smoother.
