I am interested in web development and spend a lot of my time reading up about subjects related to that field.

I am passionate about physics and astronomy and like reading about technological advances in both these fields.
Music is a big part of my live with Boards of Canada being my all time top artist - if you've not listened to them and enjoy ambient/idm/chill I highly recommend them to you.

comment Advice for servicing a Scott Sub 10 [8 speed Alfine hub gear]
Thanks for the advice Bill - I managed to sort out my gear slippage in the 8th gear by adjusting the gear cable after following some videos on YouTube ( I am pretty novice when it comes to bikes). I took my bike in for a general service due to my rear calipers screwing up after riding through a puddle/bad UK weather and everything is running smoothly now. In the future when I require servicing my Hub I will contact you on here if you don't mind?

comment Rear hydraulic disc sticking
Got the bike back and the problem was due to one of the pistons getting locked. They replaced callipers for £20. I've only had the bike six months and it feels like this is something that shouldn't fail within this period.

Opted for the bike shop option - I haven't had it serviced in 6 months of continued use so it was probably for the best. Cheers for the advice though!

It's currently getting serviced at the moment at a trusted bike shop. Should be ready to pick up tomorrow unless they need to replace the calipers/disc. Thanks for your advice.

I did do some adjustment to the gear cable and it has made some improvements to the 8th gear slippage. Hopefully I'll be able to find the sweet spot as I couldn't clearly see the markings that were described in some of the YouTube videos I watched.

I assumed they needed servicing every 2000 miles/ 2 years - whatever comes first... or am I wrong? Perhaps I do just need to adjust the cable to fix the 8th gear issue. I will investigate that this weekend. Thanks.
