Mechanical 01

This is my freewheel. Seriously not funny as I descended yet another massive pass with the fear of it locking as we turned through dropping hairpin bends. It kept clicking and grinding away and today we are hopefully getting it fixed at ‘Torpedo 7’ Queenstown but will likely be here until Wednesday. 

There are many morals to this tale and the obvious one is the world has become ‘Shimano’ and not ‘Campagnola’. More fool me but I’m lucky to have got here.

  1. Oh wow, that looks scary. You wont believe this but Dave had the same thing happen to him only a week ago. He had to get a cab home from near Potteres bar !


    • The good news is it can be sorted but means a new wheel build. We are lucky I managed to reach Queenstown to get it fixed and before it threw me off the bicycle! We should be back on the road by Thursday. Fingers crossed.
