Video: Trail Doctor - How To Replace Your Disc Brake Pads
Damn did someone do that episode already? It was next on my list. Ha ha. Actually they are intended to encourage middling riders who are a bit scared of tackling the tech side, to actually start taking notice of their bikes, how they feel and how to fix them if they are out on the trail. And I know there are a lot of average (and experienced) riders who dont (yet) do any of their own mechanics for confidence reasons. Hence the encouraging tone of my videos. You gotta start somewhere.

You are dead right. Do a bit of braking to bed them in before hitting a descent straight and scorching them... so yes, there is actually so much more we can put in these little videos, but doing so would make them become the Ultimate Bible of Knowledge, and be so long and over-explained that the audience would switch off. I'm told by my Epictv powers that be that potential viewers actually look at the length of a video to decide if they're going to bother watching it. So instead I keep them short, sweet and to the point. Like my love life.

Ah, c'mon, Lets be real .. who checks their pads before every ride.. the first I know is actually when my lever is starting to pull in close to the grips and then I wait a little longer until I can hear metal on metal LOL. Actually the idea behind this series is a mix of easy tech how-to's and trailside repairs.. you know how to get out of trouble for free stuff... and we just thought it looked a lot nicer to film it out in the wilds instead of yet another boring in-the-workshop how to. After all you cant beat a little bush in the shot can you.

You'll have trouble pushing the pistons back in with the wheel in place. And if you dont push them back in you wont be resetting them for the new (thicker) pad and they will likely rub. So pop that wheel out, and push on those pistons so you have nice working new pads the way they are meant to be.

My stock set up is a Maxxis High Roller 2.35 up front, and a Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.4 out back. You dont even need supertackys if its wet because the rock is so grippy. This loop is good for big volume tyres.. they will roll over the softer surfaces better and with less impact, and absorb the smacking from the gritstone ledges better. Don't go lightweight sidewalls if you want to make the pub before closing (pinchflat potential). Hope that helps.
