Re: Rotor size opinions/query

Thanks for all your responses it’s appreciated, will have a think possibly look at pads & take the bike out for some more challenging trails & concentrate on the braking see how it feels. Luckily my callipers are post mounted so easy enough to change.

Re: Campagnolo power torque pedal gap

Just went to check the size & to see if the left hand crank would push in & found the nut loose enough to undo by hand.

Note to self check tightness before thinking worse case scenario.

Thanks for all the info/input/advice, greatly appreciated.
