I had just had my bike serviced and the mechanic did not think they needed it yet well another 200 miles but after 1000 they were getting al little weak. it was not that bad really some cardboard under the brake will take care it.This job is probably one of the few that i have to go to the bike shop for.
They got me good last time (70$ for both brakes and had to pay them also 50$ for 2 pads) . I had pads at home bought @15$/pair ,they insisted that they could not do the bleed properly w/o new pads. I still don't know if that was true or not ?! Total 120$ but i had the ebike ready in 2hours. If i had done it myself it would have been a huge mess...and a 4-5hour job ?
And it was also the first time in 9k miles that i had the bleed done. They were working okay, now they stop on a dime.
