Disc brake bodge – Is this possible – will I (or rather my son) die
My son has a bike with Giant MPH brakes but the rear brake lever no longer works, it’s leaking through the lever it self.
He uses it more as a ‘getting to his mates’ bike now so would rather not spend £££ on a new set of brakes.
So to the question.
I have an old HS33 lever in the spares box. Could I use those?Posted 3 years ago
I guess it comes down to hose diameter & the ammount of oil thrown by the lever.
I’ve got a set of Quad Nano brakes going for cheap. They are missing one pad, and I couldn’t find a supplier at the time (bought some Deores).
Turns out the pads are quite easy to find.
They’re similar in stopping feel to Deores, maybe not quite as sharp. Looking for ~£20 + postage for the pair.Posted 3 years ago
They are “Quad QHD-7 Nano” and about 2 years old (but have been off the bike since November). They are in decent enough condition (see photo), with a few scratches on the levers and one of the callipers, but nothing getting close to worn out. There is still plenty of life left in the three pads. I’ve also got a bleed kit that fits them if you want that too.
I think I’ve shown the worst of the damage. It doesn’t look as noticeable in real life, especially when they are on the bike.
