My everyday, short haul, commuter still rides but...
  • the 8-speed Shimano hub skips in all gears but 1 & 5. It might be worn out after 40,000+ km
  • I should probably replace the brake cables since the left one has cracked all around through the outer cable though the inner one is still fine.
  • Speaking of cables, the shifter wire has a tendency to pop out of the gripshifter. probably due to a worn out shifter and rusty cable.
  • chain seems a bit rusty. I can tell from the brown slosh on the rim.
  • tyres and lights are still good.
I swear I take better care of my other bikes.
