    In this week's Auto Express (I only buy it to see how much my car has lost in 4 years (12 000 quid
    actually) ) there is a very useful article on how to claim for pothole damage from your local
    council. The advice is from a professional compensation lawyer who certainly knows his stuff.
    Obviously this advice is for car drivers, but I don't see why the same principles shouldn't apply to
    bikes. Here it is.

    Ah - about twice as much as mine *cost* five years ago :) Admittedly that was second hand with
    100,000 on the clock (i.e. nicely run-in).

    Funnily 'nuff, just replaced the front pads on the 740 with Halfords own make. The car came with a
    few thou left on them, used that, down to metal. Also came with a spare halfords set. Unfortunately
    the Halfords were for a different model, so took 'em to local halfords who agreed to swap 'em at no
    cost, god bless'em. I think they were around 21quid, so wouldn't have been that expensive anyway.
    Don't squeak no more and work fine. Breaking and steering are minimal effort exercises and you'd
    never guess you were dealing with tons of machine. Here lies the real danger to cyclists, right ;-).
    Cheers, Dave. [email protected]
