comment Why is my bike slipping gears?
Did they replace the chain? For that price I'd expect a new chain and cassette, but if your bike needed a lot of ther work maybe not.

comment How to identify galvanised and stainless cables?
@DanielRHicks because there are magnetic stainless steels. While you shouldn't see them in bicycle components, when you're buying random cheap cables anything is possible.

comment Creaking bottom bracket
Which bit had to be tightened - the quick release, the axle nuts, the bearings, the disc rotor bolts.... Please provide a better explanation of what the solution was.

It's the axle that the adjustable part pivots around.

so basically teflon powder rather than graphite powder by the sound of it. That would work.

comment Food to keep in pannier long-term until it's needed?
@DanielRHicks down under karget seem to have started stocking "energy bars" that are mostly sugar but they slip in a bunch of fruit'n'nut bars as well and the occasional thing that looks like a powerbar knockoff. But I don't use enough of them to have needed to buy one recently (I think there are two of three powerbars in my stuff still, I found one when packing up to go touring recently).

@DanielRHicks the TriFlow I'm used to is an oil with PTFE in it, and when you add it to graphite you get mud. Slippery but sticky mud. And OMG the TriFlow website is awful, all animated and delay screens because apparently it's more important that I get to see their logo than anything about their products. But they say "High-grade petroleum oils", which suggests it's oil to me.
