Hi Guys,

I was riding this morning to work and here is a slight hill which comes down into a set of traffic lights. I was just cresting the hill when the lights when yellow so i had to stop. Well i ended up half way through the intersection! I want to know how i can upgrade the brakes on my SR50 ditech?? Has anyone had the same sort of problems??

Cheers Nick :aussie:

Nick, I've found the brakes to be quite good. Are you sure yours are bled correctly?

I think i'm just use to my old peugeots brakes. I could stop on a dime everytime awesome brakes. I will get them to check the brakes next service.

Cheers Nick

Another sollution, could be to change the plates (don't know the exact word). A good sollution is "Braking wave" http://www.speed-line.dk/pimages/Brakingwave.jpg

I saw some speedfight calipers on ebay that I thought about fitting due to the fact they were bright red, think the sr brakes are fantastic myself, I am only used to bicycle v-brakes though:D

Peugots have a state of the art anti-lock braking system, I believe. I don't know if the SR50 will stack up to that, but mine work very well indeed and you really probably should have yours looked at.
