Fun night talking bikes, riding and tactics while dad helped prep James bike for this weekends BDS at Hopton, bit of head scratching with a dodgy back brake but hopefully all sorted out now as the piston was stuck in the master cylinder and the best bit was I could stay up late on a school night doing what I love BIKES !!
Dad got some of these Uber finned brake pads for the Saracen, they are a lot cheaper than Shimano genuine pads and the brake pad can be replaces as it’s not fixed to the finned back plate so should hopefully save some money ( keep dad happy )
When it came to fitting them it seemed a little fiddly to start trying to hold 5 separate bits and fit them all at the same time, but it didn’t take to long to get it sorted, hopefully the bike is now all sorted for Antur on Sunday.
What Uber Bike Components say about there pads.
Well I have to admit that I’ve been waiting for this moment to come for sometime, I’ve been riding Antor, Rev’s, One Giant Leap and raced at the FOD on my Mega and enjoyed it a lot, but I’ve always wanted a full on DH bike and now the beast is here.
Fox 40’s, Fox DHX 4RC rear shock, Team Issue Frame, Saint cranks, Saint brakes and my favorite Conti Kaisers, the fella we got it off said that all new bearings have been fitted, new freehub and luckily he had a soft spring for the front forks, so we just need to get a softer spring for the rear.
One spot of luck is I’m off to Antor with James and Richard this Sunday for some practise for my race there the end of May so hopefully the bike will fit me like a glove and everything will fall into place, fingers crossed.
