Those are some serious brakes for such skinny tyres. :shock:


This pic was taken on Hampstead Heath, where I lived at the time. If you've seen the hills there you'll know why I have such big rotors. They've saved me plenty enough times for me to be thankful I have them.

When I first built the bike I had 2.1" tyres.

I'll see if I can take more pics tomorrow. It has a child's seat brace on it which I don't want to take off again, being a right b*gger to put on this frame as there's no space above the head collar like most frames. And it's grubby too!

The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you'll crash.


that is quite true actual;ly, most of my offs involve the braking
