Splitting an old chain

Might not be worn out crankarm. Many folks have bought bikes and hardly used them. I bought a 97 hybrid a while ago - it had gone hardly anywhere in the intervening years. All as new. One of the tyres did explode as soon as I pumped it though - 20 years of it sitting in a garage didn't do it any favours :smile:

Ime the tyres and the 'V' brake noodles are the four items that invariably need replacing. And the cables if they're not stainless steel.

Agree about cables - anything that can rust if left stood. Though rust can be cleaned off many things* - intrigued by the V brake noodles though - why?

* I know this as I have one of those 97 hybrids from new - much neglected for many years - hence me buying a new/old/virgin other one for it is a good bike - and after 15 to 20 years I thought I had better check the headset and forks. A bit of a state but all cleaned up.
