Ive had my bike for about three months now and a ride at Dalby forest today has already buggered it up a bit. My front brake has just lost all stopping power, its just completely failed and i cant find any reason for this. Also i think ive already buckled the wheel a bit, its not that badly buckled because i ridden the entire red route on it today but would it be easy to straighten it. The bike is a Spech RockHopper Expert. I would be grateful of any ideas. I might rind the bike shop tomorrow.
Does the lever go all the way to the bar and nothing happen? if so you’ve probably got air in the system and / or a leak
Do you pull the lever and the pads make contact but the braking force fail to materialise? If so you may have oil / crud on the disc and / or pads, you will need to give the disc and pads a damn good clean with something like electrical switch cleaner to remove it.
yeah i pull the brakes and bads come together and press on the rotor but there is just no stopping at all. I think im gunna take it back to the shop. I might take the wheel to westbrooks chris, might get a service while im there too. thanks for the ideas
