Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

Thanks again for all the info - the cable on mine comes down the seat stay with no harsh kink. I think I'm going to get some new sintered pads and see how it goes, try and get them working as well as I can - as I said before they do work just not as nicely as other brakes I've tried, and they do see...

Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

Thanks for the great advice much appreciated - I realise the need to fiddle with the mechanical brakes just didn't know it would be every other week - will try sintered pads and see how I go, then look at bb7 and spyre and hy/rd further down the road. Can't justify full hydraulics on the Caadx

Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

You may well be right, I got it from Evans about 18 months ago and it has always been quite a lot of effort to get the brakes to work, they are not very responsive although they do work. It seemed to be the most common complaint of this particular model caadx so I presumed that's just how they are. ...

Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

The Promax Render R disc brakes on my Caadx are pretty rubbish compared with the hydraulic ones I've tried

Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

Will be taking a test ride on this Boardman in a few days at Cycle Republic and at £1600 with 3 years zero interest finance is very tempting. Anyone have experience of this bike? Weight on Cycle Republic website says 7.58 kg but on Boardman site it says 8.3kg - inclined to believe the latter, anyon...

Re: Lightweight bike with hydraulic disc brakes under £2k

On a slightly different tip an tempted by this Super 6 evo Hi-mod, more than I want to spend but top quality frame I imagine. May not be as comfortable for longer rides over 50 miles though - anyone any experience? https://www.wheelbase.co.uk/product/bikes-frames/cannondale-super-6-evo-himod-disc-ul...
