SUN 8/19/18 (NATHAN, LEO, WITH ASSIST FROM ROMAN)

Location: outdoors

Weather: Mixed clouds & sun 65-70 degrees, windy

Much nicer weather this week following last week’s washout, though it was a bit windy. It was quite busy at opening, then seemed to slow down mid-day.

Here are our notes:

Chip:

  • Increase rear derailleur cable length to get highest gear.
  • Review issue with chain coming off largest (3 total) chainring when shifting from mid to large chainring while in highest (evidently second highest .. see cable adj above) gear.
  • Front derailleur appeared conservatively set to not push chain out too far. Advised Chip to shift more slowly and from a lower gear.
  • Also installed a brake cable ferrule.
  • Chain needs lube: possibly related inflexibility is contributing to shift/chainring jump problem. Chip said he will lube chain.

Kaj:

  • Replace Cassette on ebike.
  • Replace chain.

Ben: Fill tires

Mark (Scooter):

  • Fill tires.
  • Center brakes.
  • Wheel bearing lube and tighten.

 

 

 

 

 

Paul:

  • Adjust brakes
  • True rear wheel on bike stand inside museum. Turns out there was a broken spoke. Advised to replace spoke asap and re-true.

Adar: Fill 2 tires.
