    Hi all,

    I bought a very low cost bike recently from Brick Lane Bikes. It's a lot better than I thought it was going to be but I'd like to upgrade the brakes. They work but could be a lot better.

    Which online shop has the best website, parts, prices etc?

    What sort of bike & brakes do you have? It could be a setup issue, naff / dirty brake pads - there might be a cheaper solution for you.

    Word of warning, always double check stock levels.

    Online bike retailers can be a pain the ass at time. Tredz are a nightmare for it and delivery after they take your cash.

    I ordered from stuff from Planet X recently and they are really slow to actually dispatch the items (about 4 days), then whatever delivery time on top.
