New Brakes Blocks on my cheap Mountain Bike

I haven't ridden much the last few days apart from a couple little shopping trips.

The last time I rode my mountain bike I realised the brakes were not doing there job properly so needed to get some new brake blocks, the trouble is I am a virgin mechanic, anyway ordered two sets of brake blocks from Chain Reaction Cycles seeing has the bike only cost me £56 I wasn't going to spend a fortune on Brake Blocks I know they are important read the one review on the site and he said basically they do what they say on the tin.

They cost me the princely sum of £4.00 for two pairs in there sale plus free p&p. RRP is £4.99 for one pair.

Anyway fitted them in about twenty minutes, but they were binding, after some lunch and a quick scour of the Internet YouTube is my best friend adjusted them, they are spot on now so well pleased. Brake Blocks
