    Brake pad replacement

    I replaced the brake pads on my Superfly 100. Took a bunch of pictures as I was doing it, and added it to our team website as a How-To.

    Holding down the brake lever doesn't always mean the caliper is centered about the rotor. If it works, leave it. If not, manually loosen the caliper bolts just enough to slide them where you want. Then tighten those 2 down!

    Thanks. I did find some rubbing on the rear pads after I took it for a test ride. So I did a second adjustment like egebhardt said, and now they are great.
