Look 555 “Froggie” 2010 #2 Service

Froggie, my Look 555 today received his second service for 2010 at 12,534 km, approximately 1,100 km since the last service.  I try to do regular services at 500 km intervals (winter-spring) and 1,000 km services during the summer-autumn period.  Anyway, this service consists of:

  1. Degreasing the chain using a Park’s Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber and Australian Export degreaser;
  2. Application of Rock and Roll Gold chain lube to the chain;
  3. Checking of chain wear with a Park Tools CC-3 Chain Wear indicator.  All is looking good at this point;
  4. Removal of the jockey wheels, greasing of the bushes and reassembly.  The BicycleTutor has a good video on doing this, showing how easy this simple service is;
  5. The rear shifter cable outer is showing signs of damage so looks like a replacement will be need soon;
  6. I went over the bike checking the bolts and screws – nothing loose which is nice to know;
  7. I finished off with a clean of the bike.

No other issues where noted. Tyre wear is okay and brake pad wear is okay.
