Rigs running well despite chain wear at >+1% elongation over original length. This means only about 2000 km from SRAM PC870.

Front brake shoes have approximately 50% of original material left, rear brake shoes at approximately 85% of original material left.

Bearings in hubs, lower hanger and headset in adequate condition.

Tread wear indicators are recommending replacement iminently.
