Jon covers lots more in the Clinic this week including questions around steel frames and how to prevent them rusting, whether sitting on the top tube is bad for the frame and how to prevent your chain dropping inside the little ring.

We hope you managed to learn some new tech knowledge this week and remember to keep your questions coming in for Jon using #askgcntech. 👇
