Tektro Vela Replacing the brake pads

I’m in desperate need of new (front especially) brake pads, and seeing as this is the first time I’ve ever done it, I thought I’d better get some pointers from Youtube.

This is a job that requires you to remove the wheel(s). But it looks dead easy and can be done in just a couple of minutes.

The brakes for the Carrera Crossfire-E are Tektro Vela. The second video is replacing the brake fluid.

 

My next 2 areas of maintenance are brake fluid replacement and a new chain.

About The Bionic Cyclist

I am a keen technophile and have been since I was a kid. I was amazed when one of my friends invented the wheel, and I've been nuts about technology ever since.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas, 1914 - 1953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
