What’s about the beautiful 996 Porsche in the Back ? New video content ? Who agree ?

True. My bike didn't have a side stand so if there was no wall to lean it against I just lay it down on the floor when I had to break from riding for some time.

Is it normal in the UK to have the right brake lever control the front brake? I know this is the motorbike standard. However, in the US, the right lever controls the rear brake.

They should have gotten proper pedals for the kid. The pedals that come with bikes are plastic trash. They're safety hazard.

When fitting the pedals ALWAYS double check they're not crossed threaded before tightening with a spanner.

To stop brake rub you need to align the caliper by loosening the two post mount bolts slightly so the caliper can move and then spin the wheel and apply the brake Keeping the brake applied torque them to spec along with the cable adjustments it will be perfect

Little tip James and for anyone who’s reading, if you fit the seat post and saddle first, you can then use the seat post to clamp in the bike stand and then not risk damaging the paint work on the frame and also not pinch or obstruct and of the cables to the derailleur.

Thank you James, for perfectly illustrating exactly why building a bicycle should be left to a professional. The number of things wrong is truly appalling.

Some years ago, James was biking around London with an orangutan on some sort of car show on BBC. I seem to remember James saying something like, “ it’s easy bicycle maintenance, you only need a couple of spammers and a screwdriver”. Yet, he has all those special James May-ish tools..

Two things: 1 the bars need to be rotated forwards so that the bar sweeps upwards and backwards, not down. 2 the front brake disc is on backwards. Also you can get easily adjust the brakes by pulling them fully on at the lever, then slackening the bolt on the caliper just enough so you can pull through enough cable that the lever is in perfect position for your hands. You then only use the barrel adjusted to take up also in the cable and wear in the pads.

You don’t need to undo the clamp you just need to loosen the bolt and squeeze the brake and tighten the bolts if you want more advice go to gmbn on BGcd

Never never never clamp a bike in a workstand by the frame. First thing when assembling a bike is put the seatpost in, so that can be used to clamp it in the workstand.

james. when it's once again safe to travel, come to ontario, canada. bring your mountain bike and your road bike, and we can ride. plenty of great routes for both bikes. i suspect our speed, style and enthusiasm would coincide.

On mechanical disc brakes the actuator arm should be set all the way out with the barrel nut in the middle. Usually the stack is adjusted with the pads. You tighten the pads down or just touching with the arm all the way out and no slack then adjust the pads. Fine tune with the barrel nut. If you just use the barrel nut eventually you run up on the stop. When you squeeze the brake it hits the stop and no brakes!
