First time here, I usually hang out with the commuters so be kind.
After a short night-course in basic bike mechanics, I'm now one of those attempting to do everyting yourself and consequentely messing it up and ending up at my LBS' anyway.
That said: My partner has an old-ish (2005?) Specialized Sirrus Sport with V-brakes. I would like to upgrade these brakes with something that is a bit more easy to adjust (and that works better overall). Can I simply buy new brakes (whatever I can afford) and slap them on, or is it more to consider than that?
All input greatly appreciated. Thanks!
