You open it up and find two halves of a ball bearing. Anyway, couldn't ride today because I was changing the pads and the brake caliper adjustment was froze up. 8 rainy winters will do that. No amount of wd40 would unstick it. Must have welded itself together with corrosion. I finally ordered the TRPs I've had my eye on for a few years.

Chinook, assemble that stuff with plenty of marine grease on the threads. It would surprise me a lot if 8 years phased that stuff.

Are you suggesting I should take apart a disc brake caliper and put marine grease on any threaded component of it? Or just put the marine grease on any mounting screw?

I'll take a closer look at it this weekend out of curiosity, but I will actually be glad to have those infernal bb7s off my bike.

I'm mostly liking my TRPs. I've never really tested them for heat loading, though. I'd love to hear that someone descended the Stelvio Pass or something similar without boiling brake fluid to boost my confidence in my setup.

I missed that these were discs. TRP should have given it away but as a disc illiterate, I missed that also. I probably wouldn't pull a new disc apart and lube the threads, but would consider it if the bike was going to see salt.

Does the marine grease work on rider joints as well? And what about some moss killer? Its that time of year.

OC, it's flammable, so if you smear some on your joint. you can stiil smoke it (not that I would). I'd refrain from moss killer though. That might not be good for you.

Oh, this is about knees and hips, no? I think they are still working on an applicator. Getting that stuff through a syringe isn't wrorking out so well.

silly stuff. Speaking of joints, based on the Tuesday vote, you can order weed killer from Ohio.

With respect to the corrosion issue, there are several approaches. Protect from oxidation by mechanical means (smear layers to avoid salt or oxygen contact), protect from oxidation by chemical means (cover with a sacrificial reducing agent [anti-oxidant]), or clean off oxidants (road/trail schmutz) before the reaction occurs.

Thanks for the warnings Ben. I will stick with the post-ride hot shower treatment then. For rider, not equipment.

Didn't quite reach periscope depth today which is an improvement over last week's ride. But kid's soccer game tomorrow looks to become water polo for 2nd week in a row. Those boys are troopers.
