Surly Long Haul Trucker 1000 km Service – April 2010

IMG_0676 Following my Esperance to Perth road tour Sir Lancelot, Surly Long Haul Trucker was due for a 1,000 km service which it received today at a life time 6,978 km.  A full service history for the bicycle can be found here.

This service consisted of:

  1. Cleaning the chain using a Park Tools CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber. Once it was clean I applied Rock and Roll Gold chain lube;
  2. Checking of chain wear with a Park Tools CC-3 Chain Wear indicator.  The SRAM PC-991 chain is not showing any wear of note at this point which is good considering it has only done 1, 448 km;
  3. Checking the tension on all bolts and screws on the bicycle. All good
  4. Cleaning the bike with Nu Finish Car wash with pure orange oil;
  5. On the Esperance to Perth road tour I lost the magnet for Sigma Sports ROX 9 cadence sensor so fitted a Garmin Edge 305 magnet that I had spare;
  6. Fitted my rack top bag in preparation for winter commuting duties.

There ends this service.
