Turns out I was right, Brakes are quite exciting. The disks that glow are made from Carbon Fibre and are REALLY expensive, the braided hoses are cheep but make a huge difference and it turns out my brakes are really bad and need replacing before I start scoring the disk 🙁

The course at Merton is very cool – the only thing that concerns us is the fact we’re 3 weeks in and still haven’t got our hands dirty… last night it was because the other class (who’ve got elbow deep in grease every week so far) had nicked all our equipment to learn how to bleed the brakes. There was some talk of revolt last night, but actually the tutor is so good natured that no one saud a word… but I think if we don’t do something next week… words will be uttered out loud.
