And what did the LBS do? Any newer photos?

I also had a chain jump off the sprockets recently and wondered if there is anything that might need adjusting? Found a stick to help get it back on the rings and avoid oil and grease on my hands

Funny enough, I am not sure. I think he changed the ring - didn't really check

Now in the process of moving and thinking of leaving the Mezzo behind - shame on me, impulse purchase x2!

I needed to update my bottom bracket as it is getting quite grindy. Any one know what size it is?

cheers Lee

sorry lilolee, I don't..

(but I expect you've fixed it by now, yeah..?)

just acquired an i4 myself; but things seem to be slowing down on the Mezzo front, eh..?

incidentally-

my new 'narrow' chain started jumping yesterday, as soon as I'd fitted it;

I've got a Nexus i4 sprocket wheel on order from SJS and I've refitted the old chain in the meantime...

I've read a lot about people saying these bikes need brake-upgrades; is that REALLY an issue for some folk?

I've found the i4 to be the most significant 'stopper' of any bike I've got...

I haven't had any brake problems with my I4, but I haven't really hustled at a speed where it'd be an issue. Or maybe the previous owner or LBS sorted it before I bought it, I don't know.

hey Washuai,

thanks for coming back to me-

what brakes have you got on the bike?

Or to ask that other way; have you got black front & rear arms?

I think the pictures of bikes I have seen online tend to have front & rear arm-coloured brakes and my rear is a silver DIA COMPE caliper, as opposed to the black Promax item on the front which I suspect is original..??

( i have black front & rear arms)
