First Proper Ride

11 Jan 2008 at 15:05

Phew, first proper ride of 2008 is now done, 32.1 miles 12.0 avg.

Wind, Cold, Trails completely F--ked. 1 set of pads eaten away.

The only positive aspect of the ride was that's over now... and that Heapy Fold Lane's starting to really erode.

I've just bought 8 prs of Disco Pads, but I might throw that XT rear brake on for a few weeks and see if that helps, given the state of the current rear rotor, I can't really blame the pads for dying (it's too wonky to be able to unwonk it)

you can always unwonk it but you need to be strong and have balls of steel.

No, seriously, you can't on this one.

I'm not surprised your rotor is fucked, you run on the backing plates more than you do the pads!

I think it's more knackered from me being lazy and not removing the wheel before pushing the pistons back with a screwdriver.

Of course if pads lasted I wouldn't need to.
