Cyclebrakes.com

Just got off the phone with a friendly and knowledgeable lady at Cycle Brakes. I ordered a set of the red coated stainless Galfers front and rear, .75 inches over stock on the fronts (so as to accomodate my Genmar bar riser).

Ordered three Speed Bleeders and fresh DOT4 fluid to boot.

Stuff will be here before the week is out. I think the lines will look trick and I know I'll be happier with the lever and pedal after I get them installed. Once you go stainless, it's hard to stay with OEM rubber lines.

Re: Cyclebrakes.com

What happened to your quote of "Mod less, ride more"?.........Hmmmmmm







I guess it is important to be able to stop, so brake mods fall in the line of routine maintainance.

Dry spell or something, 'bolt?

Edit: now that I think about it, I believe you questioned me about the girl cop in the What not to do on a Sunday morning thread as well. Yeah, you must be suffering from DSBU.

So far the tally is only a Puig screen, Genmar riser and now lines. That's hardly modding as compared to my past behavior.

thanks douchebag now I have to go and spend money on speed bleeders. I shoulda bought them when I got the lines (same ones you have just regular length). I can't wait till the spring so I cna play with my new goodies (db screen, brake lines and pads and custom corbin seat)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I have never used Speed Bleeders, but am looking forward to trying my first set. HG2 and others around here sing their praises. I've done brake lines on two of my past bikes and don't mind the work, but I'm guessing it's going to be a whole lot easier this go-round.

Re: Cyclebrakes.com

So none of the site sponsors could meet or beat their price?

Re: Cyclebrakes.com

I did some checking around with a couple of the site sponsors as well as a few others, but most e-vendors don't list prices for custom length Galfer lines. According to what I'm told, Cyclebrakes.com is a Galfer distributor and they make custom length sets in house, to order.

I was more than satisfied with the price and customer service I got on the phone, so . . .

Re: Cyclebrakes.com

speedbleaders suck.

I had them on my 929 and I kept getting small amounts of air in my lines. Not to mention pumping the lever FOR DAMN EVER to get fluid out. with the stock banjo and the "loosen, squeeze lever and hold, tighten, release lever" method, 4 pumps tops to get fluid to the caliper...
