  5. Thank you, it was a very helpful video.

    Can't wait to fix my bike brakes now, I have put up with almost no brakes for over 6 months now! It's going to be the best feeling fixing them. Cheers

  6. i got my new bike, i heard the noise of the disk brake hitting the brake pad, i thought it wasnt suppose to be like that, spent hours trying to fix it, ended up taking out my whole front brake completely…. if only i knew that the brake pads would've worn out eventually…

  7. Very helpful – thank you!

  8. Thank you! It works very well in my bike.

  9. It is so nice to see a well made tutorial. Good job, and thanks.

  10. i have the same exact problem .. but the brake pads with its whole unit seems slightly tilted which makes my disc rub from the edges .. i an unable to adjust due to the slightly tilt of the whole unit that grabs the disc when brake is applied .. i hope you're getting what im trying to say .. im new to biking

  11. Helped me a lot, thanks very much!

  12. Should the Front Wheel spin as freely as the rear? Mine is not hitting (Cannondale SL1) however, it's not really 'spinning' as freely nor as long as the rear ? Thanks.

  13. I was hesitant about going near my breaks as i've never fixed disk breaks. Only v brakes. But the lever was going all the way down. This video helped me fix it in 2 minutes. Thank you! Also, I was wondering if you had any idea why and how to make my breaks stop squeaking when it pours rain? … Being in Ireland .. it rains ALOT
