I got my sorry self out for a very quick spin today, went to sort out my rear brakes after getting the bike out and promptly dropped a brake pad. I then spent the best part of an hour looking for it to no avail.
Just before I decided to give up and stuff the bike in the car I thought I'd just take one final look and found the offending pad over two and a half meters away from where I dropped it, under the car near a front tyre.
How is this possible? How does an Avid pad fall and then jump over 2 metres sideways?
