care to share mate?

my front brake is rubbish and its winding me up :(lol

(echo tr brake, rock pads, tr clamps... grinded trial-tech rim NO tar!!)

You need to setup the pads paralel to the rim all you can, water bleed, hard grind (In my opinion) and some good pads. Thats it.

I put the coustpads on the rear and the hold are very unbelievable. I think, on the rear works fine... and I put a new pair on the front...

The brake holds like a Vbrake, the hold are awsome and the "squeack" sound are very orgasmic hehehe

ive set the pads as square to the rim as i can with the TR clamps, but there not 100% inline, but they lock when i pull the lever a 3rd inwards.... ( its water bled and the TPA is as far in as it can be, another 1/4 turn and the pads rub)

the blue rock pads sound lush, i allways find myself pulling the brake as im riding about, makes me cringe, and the fellow people look and moan :P

but when i gap to front the pads judder and the wheel tends to roll (N)

wish it held like my louise did.... but disc brakes weigh too much ;)

re-bleed it then put some tar on it with a nice sharp grind.

Take as much time as you can to get the pads nice and flush.

nice bike by the way :P
