I just don't know, you young whippersnappers seem to have lost the plot when it comes to bike maintenance. To remind you of the system that has held me in its thrall for nigh on sixty years:
A bicycle must at all times be 114% cleaner than in the shop. A really good man (it's always the men) would carry a damp cloth on each ride to remove all signs of dirt at every stop, and this seems a perfectly sane precaution to me.
Each set of friction inducing components, be they easily accessible lever pivots or deeply hidden freehub bearings must be cleaned and freshly lubed every time a member of the cabinet is forced to resign. I must confess this current parliament has seen an unprecedented upsurge in sales of grease, but nevertheless we must keep up the good work.
So there you have it Dave. Get out into the shed, avail yourself of the Swarfega and do what a cyclist does best ......
