@Survivor have you been out on your bike in this heat? :p

The hand grips on my bike are loose, i think the heat has melted the glue beneath them!:(

Yes been out everyday except the really hot one :p had too much work to do.I go out about 8 in the morning it's nice then.
My grips were coming off last year,kept trying to stick them with hair spray :lol but didn't last long.So got some of them lock on one's,never had a problem since.

Hairspray!!! :lol:lol:lol

I've bought some superglue, I'll put loads on the inside of the grips and then slide them on, hopefully that works! :p
I've done just over 4 miles today, didn't even attempt to go out in the heat! :p

The superglue seems to have worked, my hand grips won't budge!:p

I've noticed the chain on my bike keeps slipping on the cassette, can't think why it's doing that! :facepalm

I'm guessing it's either your cable tension or your limit screws.Look them up on YouTube pretty easy to do.Or the teeth on you cassette could be worn and maybe that's why the chain is slipping.

It was the cable tension! :cheers
All back to normal again now, although if it had been the cassette worn out it would mean I'm getting lots of miles in as I've only had my bike since Christmas. :p
