Merida Crossway 20 Cycle

A pair of Merida Crossway 20 cycles arrived for a Tune-up service. The Black one was fine but the white one’s rear brake just wouldn’t grip the disc. It had all the stopping power of a pat of butter.

A process of elimination, from changing the pads to swapping the callipers around ensued.

The only solution was a new Calliper. The white Tektro’s fitted were OEM only so a brand new Avid BB5 was fitted, which actually suited the black and red wheels and graphics of the bike perfectly. #happysafecycling
