Re: Magura brake experts?

Thanks for the reply, yes hydraulic brakes. As the bikes not too old it does say to only bleed after fixing an air leak which I find strange? Just frustrated I can't do a simple task like tighten the brakes.

Magura brake experts?

Hi, I've got Magura sports on my Whyte bike that aren't standard. I cannot find the screw to tighten the pads (the one I thought it does on top does nothing) and I also twisted off a torx screw on the bottom. So basically balls'd it up. Hardly any guides online. Just wondering if someone else has ex...

Retro suspension forks

All, got the wife a Trek Navigator 200 off eBay as we've been riding some trails and her hybrid wasn't cutting it. All in all the Treks a great bike and she's raving about how comfortable it is. The suspension has the rubber dust boots covering it that have started to crack and look tatty, can I add...

Guys, chains slipping now on the smallest high gear. From what I've read I'll need a new cassette? Gutted.

Re: Fixing up old Raleigh M-Trax, derailleur issues

Thanks for all your help, put a fresh cable on as well, got the stop screws about right, need to amend the cable tension slightly as it can't quite make the largest cog when shifting. Only other question is the cogs on the RD are much bigger than those it replaced, will I need to add any chain links...

Re: Fixing up old Raleigh M-Trax, derailleur issues

Thanks for the heads up on the hanger, I thought that was the top bit of the derailleur :?

Think that's straight, I did gently bend it back out?

Re: Fixing up old Raleigh M-Trax, derailleur issues

Honestly guys thanks for all the replies, that's really helpful. Went over my head with the M10 straightening though lol. I'd be happy just buying a new rear derailleur, not sure if all Shimano 7 speeds are compatible though? Really annoying with the nice weather I can't get out with my boy, he's ju...

Re: Fixing up old Raleigh M-Trax, derailleur issues

I have tried to bend it back and to be honest that's straighter than it was, I don't understand why the cable has so much slack in it when it's still connected to the gear shifter?
Thanks for the replies all
