    Haven't done in ages but used to sometimes cycle with one in my left ear (in the UK here), on the type of roads where you see a car like once every 10 mins, or sometimes if on bike paths where...

    Oh god. When he started saying about how it could be transferred to other types of vehicle and make everything more efficient I wanted to curl up weep.

    I know what types of sounds an unlubed chain is likely to produce and this is not at all similar. I did go to get in...

    Sorry, I assumed it used to perform as it should (quickly changing gear). Now it takes a good 10 seconds of bumping on to the next cog but not quite making it. I don't think this can but put down to...

    Not.

    Although I don't like bikes that are mobile billboards this has gone too far in the other direction for my personal taste.

    The cassette looks pretty solid. It's sort of the chain snaking a tiny bit as it goes in. There's also now a slightly disconcerting knocking noise when I'm turning the crank. I think I'm gonna have...

    Like I say, all I did was unscrew it from the hanger and screw it back on.
