The bike had a birthday, I bought and fitted new tyres, inner tubes, chain and cassette last night.

The brutal method of chain removal that I took, given I couldn’t find, or perhaps don’t have a chain tool. I then remembered that I actually know how to change tyres, inflate the tube a little first, put it into the tyre before putting tyre and tube onto the rim. I surprise myself sometimes.

I did however fail to spot that the tyres are directional, it was only having fitted the rear tyre that I noticed this. As usual luck was on my side and it was the right way first time, win.

This is the rear wheel taken as per the photo below.
