my shimano 105 disc brake levers have a lot of travel in them. replacing the pads is going to involve drilling out the pad retaining pin so i’m putting off changing them until they really need it.
could i get a reduction in lever travel by bleeding the brakes?
Here are some pictures of my up grades to my Surly Disc Trucker 52cm I will say this was not to hard to do but it sure did cost me a lot of money to do it but I am very happy I did it.Whats new is a 48,36,26 Octalink crank set. With the BB-ES51 68mmx121mm this gave me a perfect chain line.I now...
I have a bit of play in the front wheel. Can't find anything on the internet about adjusting them - apart from an old video suggesting it's the easiest thing in the world with a 2.5mm Allen key.
My wheels aren't that design sadly. Nothing to grab.

Pair of new 140mm floating rotors, 6-bolt fitting, look like stainless steel. Got these as part of an ad-hoc groupset from AliExpress, unfortunately the wheels I'm using are centre-lock so they're no use to me.
Looking for £15 posted, UK only.
I purchased in haste a Cannondale Supersix Evo 105 Carbon Disc 2021 56cm as the alpine blue sucked me in like a moth to a flame, also there are no 58cm frames available. The big problem is, its a bit too small (im 6ft2) and im thinking of selling whilst the going is good.
Done less than 100...
I've not changed a set of pads before.
Old ones were Tektro, new ones shimano.
Front ones, no problem.
Rear ones, found it almost impossible to get the cylinders far enough apart to get the gap between the pads wide enough to accept the disc rotor. Eventually, using a tyre lever to prise...
Hi I have just bought a connect coyotte electric folding bike and the magnet disc has broke of the pedal assist can I get a split one so I don’t have to take the pedals off if so does anyone know where I can get one from and have a link to it thanks for any help given
Elder Son is having a mysterious problem with the rear brake on his Canyon Neuron. Repeated attempts to change the disk, pads and oil have failed to make it work and at the moment it is not responding when the lever is pulled, Attention from a bike mechanic (Elder Son) has been fruitless, and...
Wondering if anyone has ridden with the 2019 mavic pro disc carbon wheel set . There currently on sale down to just under a grand . Might purchase these if anyone can recommend them
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...
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?
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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
I'm looking for a disc frameset (or may be a complete bike).
Cannondale CAAD disc 60cm
Specialized Allez Sprint 58/60cm
Anything similar to the above considered, PM me with details.
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. Lbs is run by an old bloke who doesn't always have the greatest stock, so might be easier to get them myself. Can anyone suggest the specific or a generic replacement...
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...
