On another positive note, I sent the offending brake off to chain reaction who have today asked for the fnctional front brake to be returned as the manufacturer will give a full warranty return. They have said the credit is to be used for a new set of brakes, which I don't really need. That said my new fatty only came with elixir 1's and with my store credit a set if hopes would only be a out forty quid more. Hmmm.
Do it, first thing I did with my Fatty was remove the Elixir 1s and fit some used Hope Tech M4s with 183mm rotors. Stops the Fatty dead. Also run them on my Orange and they work a treat.
