    135mm road disc hub

    The second hand aksium disc wheel on the back of my commuter has a nice size wobble in it now, perhaps not the bargain they seemed to be at the time. The nipples are seized and the spokes are going rusty so repairing the wheel seems futile and I'm loathe to replace it with another Aksium only...

    Noisy Disc Pads

    Hi All, has anybody else suffered from a clicking/rattling noise from the spring that holds the front disc pads in place? Would it make a difference if I removed it, opened it up a bit and then put it back in?

    Carbon disc wheels - £1K budget - recommendations welcome...

    Hi, I've just bought a discounted 2020 Cervelo S5 and I'm due to collect in a week or so from my local bike shop. The wheels are pretty mediocre and let the whole package down a little. The shop recommend Hunt Aero 50s at £800 a set. I've read that although they're not bad, they're nothing...

    Adjusting TRP HY/RD disc brakes

    Does anyone know how to adjust these particular brakes? I've changed wheels, which meant changing the rotors and the result is that the pads are rubbing against the rotors. Fwiw I've centred the brakes. I can head for the bike shop (Decathlon) who sold them, but the mechanics never seem to be...

    TRP Spyre cable disc brakes ...... Part missing?

    I have just ordered and received two sets of Swissstop brake pads for my TRP Spyre cable operated disc brakes, but looking at videos and pictures online, a small part appears to be absent from the brakes currently on my bike. In the picture below, you can see what the pad retaining pin is...

    Disc rotor recommendations

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a centrelock disc rotor (160) for some new Mavic Aksium wheels? I bought a set of Shimano centrelock adapters to allow me to use the 6 bolt rotors from my current wheelset, but they appear to be incompatible, hence switch to centrelock rotors. Thanks

    What disc pads?

    Hi all, I have a Merida Ride Disc 500 bike which has Shimano RS785 160 discs according to the spec. I was just wondering what disc pads are suitable? And are they hard to fit, I believe they may be mechanical so no need for hydraulic work. Many thanks

    Replacement disc pads

    Morning. Looking for some advice on replacement disc pads. The brake is a promax 330 r. I have attached a pic of those I removed.

    Another disc brake question

    I wonder if any of you could give me some advice about disc rotors. I am changing the wheels on my Triban rc520 to Fulcrum 6 Racing DB. The disc rotors on my current wheels are the 6 bolt type, the attachment for which seems to be an integral part of the wheel. The fulcrum wheels appear to be...

    Disc Pad composition query

    I'm new to discs and my Orbea Gain has Tiagra hydraulics. I've finally worked out that the replacement pads are the same as those for 105 - Shimano Road BR-RS505/805. I also understand that 'resin' pads are specced ('resin only' inscribed on the rotors). Discobrakes for example doesn't list...

    Turbo Trainer and disc brakes

    Might be a daft question but does anyone know if you can use a disc brake bike on a turbo trainer? I bought a trainer about a year ago from Halfords, it's just a basic one, and set it up with an old mountain bike which was gathering dust in the shed, but couldn't seem to get on with it. If we do...

    What type of disc brake calipers are these?

    Evening all. Calipers won't adjust anymore so gonna get some new ones, just confused by the variety. Post mount or the other type? (Direct mount?)

    Using a disc brake hub on a rim brake wheel?

    Hi folks, I just picked up my rear wheel after a hub upgrade and rebuild. The rim is a 36h Ryde Andra 30, the hub was upgraded to a Deore XT. Now, the hub they used is a disc brake hub and I use rim brakes. In the LBS they'v told me there is no difference in operation. Is this true? I imagine...
