As per usual, along with my upcoming rear tire replacement I will also replace the chain.

Also as per usual, with every other tire and chain replacement, comes a sprocket kit.

But this just in:

I have developed a fork oil leak.

So now I have an upcoming fork rebuild.

I'm going to try to push this off until winter maintenance, but we will have to see how much worse it gets. I was already in line for a fork oil change this winter. As luck would have it, I already have the seals. Because of how hard it has been lately to get parts, I've pre-ordered some stuff to have on hand.

Now, was this good pre-emptive thinking, or did I just jinx myself. 馃ぃ Hard to say.

Maybe you can just get lucky on the fork seal and it's a piece of debris that'll come out with Seal Mate or something similar to buy you some time. I've never gotten lucky with that though.

RK Chains are great.

it is always the brake side seal 馃槀

careful though, i've done the push it off... tends to drip on the front brake and ruin your stopping power
