I let one go too far last week... and it caught me out on a weekend...

I wasn't near any big towns, so I finished up having to hitch-hike seventy miles or so to get the bearing. I had a workshop at a friend's place I could use.

The brakes were fine, though the pads had started to wear in a tapered fashion. That will have cost them some life.

Please, guys, try to remember that b-r-e-a-k means to smash something. Car brakes are b-r-a-k-e-s.
