Most shops will tell you to take your bike to a park or field to practice the 1st few times clipping and unclipping. Congrats on the FELT, nice bikes.I got a new bike, it'ss a FELT, Road bike. Had the trek but couldn't get the right fit even though it was the right size frame. Anyone looking to buy a one year old small sized road bike
I am making the switch to clipless pedals, so I just set my new bike up on the trainer so I can practice clipping in and out befoe I take it on the road, :O
I've got about 3000 km on my bike and the chain is only starting to wear. I'd ask them what the deal is.I took my bike in to Trek yesterday to get tuned up. I also asked them to install my bike computer for me as I tried to install it myself but no luck. They called me as i left the store to say that my chain needs replacing. I'm like 'what? why?' and he said that 'it's toast'.. so i agreed and then went back to the store bc i wanted to know why as I literally bought my bike last July and stopped riding in October (I don't ride in cold weather haha). He goes 'how many KM's have you ridden' .. and supposedly over 1200k you need to replace your chain. I did a lot of riding in the short time i had it.. to and from work, 50 k rides on Saturdays (every saturday), Duathlon, rode to Niagara, rode to Pickering.. so i think i went way over 1,000! wow.
Can't wait to get my bike back March 28th to start riding to and from work starting April 1st
I'm not sure.. i dont know much about bikes. I haven't really heard any complaints from the Trek store on Yonge, mostly everyone i knows go there, I had one friend who swears by them. I did do a ton of riding last year.. i rode everywhere. I didn't have time to call up a friend and get them to come with me as i wanted to get my bike tuned now so that I could start riding it April 1st..The Trek store does not know what they are doing, probably a bunch of teenagers working part time jobs there.
I bought a trek bike last year from the TRek store, after a month my friend basically had to take the bike apart and put it back together since it was assenmbled wrong.
Also they use some cheap parts, I had to replace the bottom bracket after one season (about 1000kms). I never had my bike tuned there even though they would do it for free since I bought it there.
It's a bit strange they told you to buy a new chain. Are they replacing your cables? you need to replace cables more oftern. Are you good with riding your gears? If you ride in the wrong combination of gearing it can prematurely wear out the chain. I think this happens more on a mountain bike with three rings at the front then a road bike that just has two though...
Albion trails are still closed for mtb. (I live in Caledon)There's a slight chance Albion will open this weekend, if not they should open Easter weekend.
