Got some new pedals, there sweet, got a new seat, a bont something it is comfy, also got a CATEYE speedometer, heavy duty kind for mtn and xc biking, but i need help with thes calipers, should I scrub them with palmolive and water? they don't stop all that fast... it is a diamondback coil, promax brakes and I hear they aren't the best. also my back rim is bent... could that effect the bracking? I'm concerned because i've joined the race team and these brakes aren't stopping all that well, should I get some larger pads? how much would they be? and thanks for the info on the pedals I got the ones that were silver and black um.. can you guys tell me an inexpensive caliper brake pad that you recomend? I need something that is better with more stopping power I have ten dollars but I don't want anything too pricey for example 30 dollars no higher than 30, there is a really good bike shop in newark delaware called bike line, and my dad knows the owner! Isn't that awesome? well, thanks for any replys they will be very useful. I'm just really starting to get into mountain biking after 2 years and i need some brakes thanks guys.
