Thank you all for more comments and suggestions.
Yes I will do that.Is there gear on the front? my guess is that it is not from the handlebars turning but from moving the cables out of the way with gear. I would recommend cabling the bike with the gear on it to get a good idea of how long or short it needs to be.
Yes I will. She has lots of spare pads.Be sure to get new pads on those brakes and carry an extra pair. Magura is not exactly a house brand at most LBS in US. Also replace the hose on the front brake.
Belt drive.If she can set of with a new cassette and chain.
This is one of the things we talked about. She said she knew she should stretch, but didn't do so very much. Now she is paying for it, literally, with sessions at Tokyo Physio; "Wobbly shoulder, wonky pelvis, creaky back & concrete quads". She's already cycled from France to here! I will direct her to the resources you suggest. Her next stage is to row across the Pacific Ocean in a 7m rowing boat.Also if she doesn't know about SMFR she should. This will allow her to get her muscles back to their normal length after every ride.
No deal. Sorry.I bet you a keg of Stu's beer that you'll find 700C written on her tires
I was hoping you would know something about such tires. Just need to ascertain whether they will fit through the fork and not hit the brakes.
Yes Chuck said the same thing above. I will check this very carefully when we do the refit. Thank you!I wonder whether they made the cables too short when installing the parts, or the front handle bar bag is creating funky angles that cables don't like?
