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.

UFO, my Story.

True story: My UFO sighting near Manchester Airport. It was around 2005 and I was driving from Halifax to Airdrie (Near Glasgow) and back.

I was a class 1 HGV driver, and since it was a very long drive and could over run my driving hours it was double manned, so there were 2 drivers taking turns. On the way back we’d come down the M6 – M61 – M60 – M62, and this one morning we were stuck in early morning rush hour traffic trying to get on the M60 just south of Bolton and I was driving, the other guy, (Shane) was fast asleep.

Then I noticed a small but very bright light to the south, around Manchester airport area, and for a while I just watched it dart around, sometimes smoothly moving around, sometimes darting, almost like it disappeared and reappeared instantaneously some miles away. After around 10 minutes (we really were stuck in traffic) I noticed what looked like a fighter jet trying to chase it. The jet had no chance, it just couldn’t keep up, I thought it was just my mind playing tricks, so I woke Shane up (he wasn’t happy about it) and told him to look, and he saw it too. This went on for around 30 minutes before the light vanished once and for all, but the jet kept circling for a while before it too disappeared (problably landed).

Youtube Red SCAM Warning

I’ve just received an email from Apple (I think not!) that’s telling me I’ve subscribed to Youtube Red (a streaming music and TV service from Google), and it’s going to cost me $14.99 per month.

 

There are 2 immediate problems with this,

  1.  Youtube Red is not available in the UK
  2. I hadn’t even heard of YT red until today, so I certainly wouldn’t have subscribed.

Clicking on the UNSUBSCRIBE link takes you to a very well done but FAKE apple service page. This page then prompts you to enter your apple ID and password. DO NOT DO THIS THIS IS A SCAM!

As you can see from the URL’s, it’s a complete fake, Apple always links to apple.com or subdomain’s like sign-in.apple.com or something similar.

It’s a well done fake, but a complete fake and they’re after your details to access your account. Don’t fall into this trap!

 

Eee, By ‘eck, in’t Yorkshire Grand?

I was digging around and deleting some old photos and pictures when I came across these that I’d forgotten about.

Enjoy
