FD brakes on FC
« on: March 26, 2007, 05:00:13 PM »
Hi all, Just a quick question.

When putting FD brake callipers onto an FC, Do I need FD discs or FC discs?

Thanks in advance.

Front FD Calipers fit straight on with no hassel and no need to change the Disc or anything.

 Rear FD Calipers won\'t fit period.

So, let me just make sure I have this right.

I need to order new discs as she has a warped disc on the front. Therefore I order FC discs, not FD discs.

Thanks for the help guys :)

So, i fitted the new discs and the FD callipers today. absolute piece of cake to do, even though the pipes did need a bit of a twiddle.

What a funny set up all that gubbins is thats inside the bells of the discs. :D I found the other brake pipe on the back of the hub and thought, "Eyup, what do we have here then?"

Still none the wiser but just put it all back together :D
