    They’re the same brakes as on my carerra Fury. Personally I’d adjust them myself, the guys at Halfords had 2 attempts at mine and it took me 10 minutes with an alan key to do a better job than they did, and I’ve never done it before.

    so do you think its just a case of adjusting the brakes then? and not a seized piston?

    I think it’s better to adjust them first than assume the worst.

    hey, that rhymes! 🙂
