Bugger!

Those of you who were on Saturday's ride might remember me having a few brake problems...

Well, by the time I got home one of the pistons had stuck so solid it was pushing on the disk and thus the caliper 'centering' was way off. In the end I had to take the pads out as it was the only way I could get the wheel to move. Took it to my LBS yesterday knowing not to touch the brake (as I would move the pistons (couldn't get no pads in) but alas a dog owner who couldn't controll their dog soon made me squeeze it very slightly. No knocking or rubbing and it all seemed normal.
Anyway got the bike back today, turns out the piston had come out so far the disk had practically disintegrated it, so I've now had to pay out for new oil and new pistons.
But on the plus side I also have a shiny new X-type RaceFace BB and crankset fitted... Oooh sexy stuff!
My riding is more up and down than the damn area I live in! And the tart's knickers who lives next door - Combined!  :o
