Just had a call from my brother-in-law and father-in-law who are currently riding C2C from Northumbria to Cumbria with a mechanical issue. Apparently the brakes are knackered on the bike I lent him (a bad workman...) and the rear has stopped functioning. The brakes are Juicy 7's, and the issue relates to the spider that holds the pads in; by all accounts it's knackered, and they're not too sure of the locality.
They are at the Bowes Hotel in Bardon Mill, although I'm not clear as to whether the route they are taking is a well trodden one (with a plethora of bike shops on route) or if they are fooked. They set of tomorrow on the rest of their quest - does anyone know the locality, the availability of parts on a Sunday, or has a bag of Juicy spares they can drop by to them on a white charger? The best solution gets a Team Bullheart cycling top sent to them!
