discovery = more money

Moved my bike a bit in my living room, to do some polishing, and look at my front tire and notice a dent (bought my 85 700 about a month ago, and been tinkering ever since) so I press on the sidewall of the tire...air leak....grrr... after an hour of gently trying to persuade it into place with a block of wood and a hammer, I screamed no joy and got on ebay for a replacement. $72 later have one on the way. So, I got to use this as a learning experiance for my fiance and let her take the damaged wheel and brake rotors off...once I get my replacement I will update this to let you all know how it goes.

Well, got my wheel from ebay, and have to say it went together as easy as it came apart. I need to find a clip for a front brake pad now, because some idiot knocked it off and it vanished. (by idiot, i mean me and by vanish I mean said idiot can not find it) But anyway, does anyone have one of those clips laying around from a brake change???

I am guessing it is the little rectangular clip you need, PM me your address and it will be on it's way.

Lucky You!! You just won the free clips on friday for Idiots pool, and by Idiot I mean YOU! LOL
