    Disc Brakes

    Right workmate wants his bike fixing, its got Tektro disc brakes on which don't work.
    I'm not even going to attempt repairing them.
    So anyone got some semi decent brakes they don't want at a reasonable price ?

    They don't have great rep but they're cheap. I've been running a set on my work bike for 3 or 4 years without any issues.

    They work fine, and still have quite good pads in them. I guess ebay is a good place to look for what they sell for, but obviously "mates rates" will apply
