    Disc brake alignment

    Brakes rubbing front and rear after son borrowed and promptly crashed newish mtb. Never had discs before, re aligned by loosening Allen bolts, hold brake on, then re tighten with brake on. Seemed to work. Is this the correct procedure?

    Small wheel disc braked dynamos

    Hi folks... I'm looking for info on 100mm wide disc-braked dynamo hubs suitable for small wheels.... I know of a couple, an eye-wateringly expensive SON (it will be lovely, but it is expensive) and the Biologic Joules 3 Disc.... which isn't exactly cheap and seems to be almost unicorn rare...

    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...

    mechanical disc brake service/upgrade

    I've got a 2010 Giant Revel and its time for a brake service. its got the original callipers and pads. there still looks like there is plenty of meat on the pads but I'm getting a horrible squeaking. I don't think pads have a shelf life so considered changing pad material rather than the resin...

    disc brakes squeak

    had my bike a few months new, changed the tyres on it to some Gatorskins, when I put the wheels back on, all was fine, but I've noticed that when I pull the brake lever hard the brake squeals as if I'm torturing the disc. I'm guessing this just isn't aligned correctly? tried taking the wheel off...

    Disc brakes/rim cleaning

    Hi, Completely new to having a bike with disc brakes? Do you still need to clean the rims on them, I did every time I go out on my other bikes. I`d probably still do it to make them look nice and last longer but is it absolutely necessary? Warm soapy water for my other bikes was good enough!

    Disc Brake 'Spacers'

    Not for the brake itself, but to allow the near-side mudguard stay, to clear the caliper Has anyone any suggestions? I know I could use a longer bolt & run a few nuts down the thread, but it's Senior Managements new bike, so that's not really viable (aesthetically unpleasing)

    Decisions/decisions Boardman 9.8 disc or Synapse

    Surprised my hybrid disc bike has same width rear end as road bike.

    When I say width I am referring to the distance between mounting points. I was measuring the width of my hybrid rear end in readyness for getting a rack. I was surprised that it is about the same as my Triban road bike. In fact the rear end of the Triban is a bit wider by 18mm. I see racks...
