Tech Talk / Re: Canyon suspension - maintenance

sorry about the delayed reply...


leaving it upside down id a good idea and it does work well. , The other thing worth doing is making sure the stanchions are clean and spraying a small amount of ptfe spray or silicon lube on them , compress the suspension a few times a wipe off the excess . it should pull any dirt out of the seals and get some oil in from the other side.

In previous years I have prepared by riding the mountain bike a good amount and then doing some progressively longer road spins as it approaches.

Starting with 100km, 130km, 160km.

Simple as.

But can do more than that. I'm not a fan of winter road biking!

@colmI’ll try a midweek spin, I may need to upgrade my commuting lights for those roads.

Gaffer / duct tape... I've used it in the past for ghetto tubeless and it works a treat..

There are lots of youtube videos about it...

Saw that one on FB mark. Didn't realize it would work for a commuter. Thanks.

That place in Athlone has the London road drop bars for slightly more than the U.K. But the kaffenback is about €999.

Speaking of which just saw this:

Its essentially the same deal except you don't need to cut up old tubes when its already done for ya which is what the Joes kits are!  ;)


Yeah but if you cut it right, the tube edges sit up against the inside of the tyre, making a nice seal. Rather relying on having smooth rim to create a seal. If you catch my drift.

I’d be interested in joining the training spins, though I won’t be going fast on the day. I did a good few spins before last year and strangely found in more difficult building up to 60km than 100+


When do you want to start?


Not sure what Simon was planing. Myself I'd be looking to get out on some mid-week training spins, weekends are primarily for the mountain bike. Would look to maybe do some spins up around the bohernabreena reservoir some climbs around that way to get you in shape. Could maybe try arrange something for next week or so if your up for it?
