Wheel bearings cleaned and greased, headset bearings the same, chain & cassette sparkling, tyres pumped and brakes adjusted. Lovely morning.

It's strange you should say that MtB but I have often been described as a 'spanner'! Must be the leopardskin stilleto SPD's /BigMat dungarees combo!  My derailleur treachery is awfully unforgivable but my lungs have thanked me, but as for risking my manicure...

Once upon a time, in the years before grass, there was a handsome young cyclist who spurned the delights of a geared bicycle and swore that a fixie was the one true path to enlightenment.  The wisdom of his elders and betters gradually wore him down and one bright day in the 21st century he relented and swore allegiance to the great god Cassette.  And so shall it come to pass that home maintenance will one day creep up on this fellow and he is bound to adopt the ways of the spanner.  I wait for that day with bated breath.

Is there a dearth of grubby fingered, pimply youths on the Island of my Conception MtB? I'm sure as pants under Lycra, that I shan't be risking my shellacs performing such tasks...
