it begins...

Just unpacked the brakes I won on ebay for my new BMX.

There can be a large variation between one persons description of something being in 'good condition' and the next, luckily these are freakin' mint. They've clearly only ever seen time on a showbike boasting nary a scratch. Good ebayer!

I just need to get some brake shoes for them, and what could be cooler than these? Need to find them in black to keep the colour scheme sweet.

An alternative is these pads made by British firm Gusset, they are of course Gusset Incontinence Pads.

Surely the yellow fit in with the frame colour scheme??

the yellow is on the way out I'm afraid. Black Skyways Tuffs and tyres are on the shopping list along with a black saddle.

Put the (shoeless) new brakes on yesterday evening - looking good, and a shitload better engineered than the tinfoil jobs they're replacing.
