Nearly didn't get to ride last night after I had another lower jockey weheel bearing seize up on me. Luckily I have another bike with an X9 rear mech that I 'borrowed' from to go riding last night. I have ordered a replacement stainless steel 6801-2RS bearing for the Jockey wheel (as the wheel itself is barely worn at all). I just hope that this stainless steel one lasts better than the standard ones which are terrible. Good ride in the end. The Viking Way is not nearly as muddy as it has been recently and the weather was milder than of late.
