A year on and over 8000 miles of city riding; our Baker bike is in for a service and an overhaul. Aside from the expected wear and tear our only concern was a fork fault, looking like a fatigue event and a combination of miles, cobbles and tons of bread.
So we took the opportunity to upgrade to a stronger fork design and revise the front end geometry in line with our latest improvements and understanding. There's a new steering link to go with it and a test ride showed the improvement we hoped for. Slowly and surely we're getting the hang for this bike building business and this baker bike is a great proving ground for our design and component testing. Here's to the next 8000 miles.
