comment Does my bottom bracket need replacing?
@Mattew. Well said. I bought a Boardman because 99% of the information I found about them was positive, including reviews. Maybe I wasn't looking in the right places. Now I really wish I'd stuck to a more established brand that would have been more reliable. Oh well, hindsight is a wonderful thing

comment Fork lube. Should I use it? If so how often?
I've marked this as the answer because I think whatsisname is right. There are no general rules, it's probably different for every type of fork

Do you find that the Ergon GC2 grips work well for off road technical riding?

Sorry, I've confused everything by being an idiot. As several people have pointed out the article I posted a link to is about handlebars, not grips, and it is grips I'm interested in. I've deleted my post because it's rubbish

Damn. I was hoping there were some general rules that could be followed. You're right, my Forks are RockShox Recons air and they provide some tips sram.com/en/service/rockshox/tuning_tips.php#DosAndDonts

I was really just interested generally. I do wear gloves with gel pads. I can't comment on my grips because I don't have the experience. I don't know what I'm looking for

comment What's the best way to track your performance?
I recommend MapMyRide as well. The website is great and the Android app is very easy to use

comment I often get a sore neck when riding. How can I adjust the setup of my bike to help prevent this happening?
That's really useful thanks! From reading your answer and the Sheldon Brown info I suspect that raising my handlebars or shortening the stem will help

comment How do I separate disc brake pads after accidentally pulling the front brake while the wheel is off?
No, there is a gap between them, just not enough for the rotor

comment Does my bottom bracket need replacing?
After speaking to the guys in the store where I bought the bike it turns out that this is a very common problem with Boardmans, they have replaced a lot of bottom brackets, possibly due to a bad batch of components

Yeah it is covered under warranty. I'm hoping this isn't a sign of things to come
