Had a Carrera Zelos MTB for many years, top spec bike.
In april’s lockdown and furloughed, I dragged it out the shed and although I had had this bike for about 20 years, never really did much serious riding on it. It looks new.
Its been a leisure bike.
So, I gave it some much needed TLC. New brakes the hopes had been spongy for too long.
A new chain, wow.
About 2300 miles later, I got a road bike through cycle to work scheme.
However still use the MTB now its winter.
Got another new chain a nice SRAM one.
Took it out today but was unrideable…
No adjustment on the rear mech wold make any difference. Chain skipping.
Decided on a new cassette, so abandoned ride and got a PG950 from Halfords, SRAM, fitted set up, have been out on it and its 99% good, changes are awesome, but this cassette is obviously heavier than my old one? Its solid gears, my old one was LX Deore groupset, none of the cassette gears were solid, these are.
