Please bare with me as no absolutely know nothing about disc brakes on bikes but mine seems to be suffering a few problems at the moment.
On my mtb i have elixir 5 brakes fitted. The front works brilliantly but the back is not to good. When i pull the lever it pulls back almost to the bars...
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?) The photo with the disc is the front - I guess this is a post mount? But what about the rear? Seems to mount directly on the frame? Am I correct? Do...
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?
I have a full Tiara 4700 groupset with callipers which I want to use for a new build. (I want to try titanium) thinking Vaare MPA or Spa Elan. What doc brakes could I get to use my existing shifters. Then I can rust buy wheels and callipers.
Bought a new Surly Disc Trucker Frame set but I'm not going to build it up now.
It's a 54 cm frame set that includes a fitted Cane Creek headset (£35) and genuine Surly seat collar.
The photo of the built up bike is just a guide. It's this colour and this years model.
I would prefer...
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...
couple of questions in one if i may...
my 160mm shimano rotors have resin only marked on them, but most pads say kevlar, sintered or organic. am I just being stupid in thinking non of them are compatible with my rotor.
which other brands have multi pad use? I was watching some Avid BB5 rotors...
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 have for sale my Synapse, its in great condition with just a couple of marks to the paint near the dropouts that dont spoil its appearance, it has the following extras
Shimano R685 hydraulic shifters with calipers( just had new pads)
FSA SLK 100mm stem
FSA SLK 25.4 carbon seatpost
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...
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...
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!
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
Has anyone got experience of a rear wheel disc cover/ jacket, not sure what they’re called?
my 88mm wheel has broke and thinking of one of these for an Ironman coming up, can’t afford a new wheel yet , been looking second hand, so thinking along this line temporarily!
I know these are both ludicrously expensive.
Wheelbase have the Synapse Hi Mod etap red at a reduced price
Which seems a comparable spec and price to the Boardman SLR 9.8 disc...
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...
Long time since I posted, but my broken bones are all mended and I have been mostly mountain biking along canal paths and doing the odd road ride.
Next year I hope to achieve my life's ambition to ride from the north to south coast of France on a proper touring bike with all the kit...
Has anyone had experience of bleeding bicycle disc brakes. Im just wondering what places sell small syringes and also the small flexible plastic pipe that connects fom the syringe to the caliper bleed nipple. Finding these to items is proving somewhat difficult!
For sale: a pair of Fulcrum CEX 4.5 wheels, 22 spokes on both, tubeless ready and disc brake specific, with centre lock rotor fixing and thru axle. Only a few hundred miles old. These are a pain to set up tubeless, which is why I replaced them. £100 ovno.
The bike from Halfords was cheap £175, however it did what I wanted, to get out with camera so exercise and ability to stop anywhere to take pictures.
However first time brakes had a problem, really caught me out, they had been so good, then came to anchor on and only slowed me down gently no...
Out of these 2 bikes which one would you buy and why?
