One of my sons has got himself a mountain bike to ride to work but it is missing a rear brake block.

Further investigation shows it is missing the bit that holds the brake block.

Went to the local tip but the pikeys had all the bikes cos they were "sold" so no joy there and eBay seems to be listing anything like this as "vintage" with a price tag to match.

Does anyone have an old bike kicking about they could spare me that part of before I am forced to order this set for a tenner

Cheers.

Butchered one of the kids bikes to keep him mobile.

Fixed the brakes and found the wheel was buckled. Fortunately I had a spare one in the garage, just in case.
