New brakes, chain, and cassette
Paul's MiniMoto side pull (V) brakes designed for short pull road levers. These should be a big improvement over the Avid Shorty cantilevers.
New chain and cassette.
Service rear hub.
In preparation for this I had taken off the rack, lights and fenders off and gave it a thorough cleaning.
Compass Babyshoe Pass extra light 650x42
Rear hub clean and lube
This is something I should be able to do myself but I don't have the tools to take the cassette off.
