Problems with your Gears on your bike or e-bike

Problems with your Gears on your bike or e-bike One of the problems people often complain about is that they are having problems changing gear on their bike. Comments such as "the chain comes off the gear thing at the back" or "the chain is getting jammed in the spokes". One of the likely reasons for this is a bent derailleur hanger. See picture below. This is the piece of metal the derealeiur or rear mech hangs from. Its made of a softer metal than the bike frame so that if you knock the derailleur or drop the bike on it it will bend the hanger rather than the frame of the bike, which can mean the end of the frame and the bike. The good news in the Grassington Bike shop we have specialist tools to tell if the hanger is bent and although there are literally 100 of different designs we have always been able to obtain a...

Daily Cycling Helped Me Lose nearly 18kg

Slowly I had grown to be on the verge of being overweight I had never thought I would need to diet, for years I had been pretty lean but slowly I took on a bit of weight. I had grown heavier very slowly and in fact I had started to feel okay about this as I didn’t look so thin as I had once looked. Gradually my belt needed to be let out a notch and then a year or so later another, but the weight was only increasingly slowly. Then one day I bought some new shirts from Marks and Spencer’s. The neck size was right, the chest size was the same but as they were a tailored fit they were rather tight around my tummy. This was a wakeup call and checking my weight I realised that I was just 200g short of being classed as overweight, in fact I later discovered that due to faulty scales I had just been...
