Well, I joined herd of cattle in colorado and I too, have a Koxx LB 1065. The front disc setup is weak. Actually it sucks to no end. Its a Deore Mechanical brake setup. It doesn't work. I pull and pull that lever back and the bike keeps on going. Near term, what can I do? Sand the pads a little?, how about the rotor? Long term, what should I put on there? I'd like to stay with disc, but I'm wondering if its worth it. It'll be a while, as my wife is saying "no more buying bike parts until the house is in better shape wned: ". But I can handle that. What do you run in the front (disc reply's only)? What would you recommend?
