    Upside down brakes

    The question has been asked many times - "Will air get into my disc brakes if I turn my bike upside down?" - and some of us tirelessly keep answering that question. Well no more! I've had site manager gregg insert the info into our Disc Brake FAQ at the top right of this page.

    Now we can concentrate on more important things like - "What's the best breaks?"

    For Shiggy and the rest of the cable disc fellas we're next going to tackle the question "If I turn my bike upside down will the lube run out of the cables?".

    My best (and only) break was in October when I landed on my head, fracturing and compressing T3 and T4 vertebrae......

    Oh yeah, nice work on the FAQ update!

    One of these days I will get off my butt and put together some sort of a request for MCM. Have the Gustavs on the FR, just have to purge the garbage off of my trailbike and throw on a set of marta SL's.....
