    Circlips for Disk Brakes

    Looking at replacing the pads on our Pino. The bolt holding the pads in place has a circlip on the end that looks like these. As they are small enough to lose quit easily, I thought I might get a few spares. Anyone any idea where I might get them and is there a 'proper' name for them?

    New brakepads on SRAM Apex disk brakes not quite right

    My front brake pads wore down to the metal so bought some new ones. The official ones for SRAM Apex are £25, too expensive. I came across some Noah & Theo pads for a much cheaper price so bought them. A friend advised me to buy them as they worked fine on his though I don't know what brand and...

    Another noisy disc brake thread

    After 10 months of silent operation from new, my Shimano M396 hydraulic discs began squealing like banshees. I cleaned the pads and discs with brake cleaner, which briefly alleviated the problem but it came back. I bought new Shimano pads (F&R), cleaned the discs again and fitted them -...

    Itermittant braking with disk brakes.

    Hi. Just bought a new Pedelec mountain bike over the internet. All is working well apart from the disk brakes that have a severe case of ABS. Hard braking is DIABOLICAL, intermittantly grabbing and fading. I had the bike safety checked when I got it and mentioned the brakes but although...

    Idiots' Guide to Road Disc Brakes

    I could look up all this stuff, of course, but I am hoping it is easier to pick the brains of CC peeps. I am building a new all-season commuter/workhorse. The frame is a Kaffenback. The idea is to have a tough disc-braked road bike, so as to stop wearing away so many rims with the salt-and-sand...
