Yeah one bolt holds the actual brake to the frame, then there are two removable clips which hold the brake cable to the frame and finally the brake lever, all are held with various sized allen key bolts. Takes no longer than 10 minutes to do.

Lance…perfect example of a high cadence rider while others would use a higher gear but lower cadence

So the message is - as long as we all ride like Lance Armstrong we don't need gears.

im sure there is variation in the cadence that pros use, but they all use higher cadence than any of us plebs would.
the message is that high gears are overused and overrated. whilst the opposite is true for fixed gears.

two thumbs up for cyclesurgery at spitalfields. they do a free 1st service (worth £99) within 6 weeks of purchase. bike feels very tight and smooth again now, like brand new.

two thumbs down for evans then.
had a service a few weeks back, they didnt do fuck all. ended up having to go back to get the work i originally requested re-done and then 'mysteriously' the following day my lefty fork blew out. i swear it was sabotage.
