Re: break pads replacement - alu shards

Thanks all for the comments.

I had considered the Swiss Stop Green, but have read in a few forums a few people complaining that they eat away the rims by collecting stuff specially in the wet.
Can you confirm that they are 'gentle' on the wheels?

Cheers

break pads replacement - alu shards

Hi all We had a particular wet July and I have noticed that the break pad inserts have collected a lot of grit and alu shards. Breaking became noisy and left some impressions on the (alloy) rims. Got through the month by plucking the shards off almost every commuting day which was really annoying. C...

Hi Peter

Can you please confirm that the finish time in Marrickville is ~10:15am?
Last Sunday at the Waterfall ride I heard someone saying that we should expect to get back at or after lunch time.

Re: Advice on new road tyre

Here is my follow up feedback. I ended up going with a pair of Ultremo DDs (not the ZX) and they are great. I do a few club rides to Waterfall, Eastern Hills and Slowies and commute almost daily through the dirty streets of Redfern, Surry Hills and the city. So far have had only one puncture which h...

Set the alarm, woke up, but so did the baby. After a while we both went back to sleep.
As a punishment I had a broken spoke during the wet ride to work.

Hi Christian

I'd be interested in a club cut small jersey depending on the turnaround of the order.
Are you working with a particular timeframe?

Advice on new road tyre

I understand that tyre choice is quite personal and also varies according to type of riding and rider weight, but I really would like your opinion on the subject. I have recently fitted 2 x Continental Grand Prix 4000S II (700 x 23c) and 500kms later this happens to the back tyre. http://www.avocom....

Queen's Birthday ride

Anyone up for a ride on Monday (9/6)?
I was thinking of something 80 to 100kms @ 28s pace leaving at 6:30, but I could be convinced of leaving at 6am.
Not really sure where to go at this stage.
Hopefully the weather will get better over the weekend and it will be a good day for a ride.
