I decided to take the Azzurri road bike with 25C tyres this morning, it was wet AF and the brakes turned to mush black paste :(
Still a fun ride in, as Bus replacements for Trains meant the freeway traffic was fkd! So glad I don't drive 2 work!

What brake pads do you have? They shouldn't do that.

article below reminded me of what I witnessed on the M2 while riding home last week.
westbound afternoon traffic was reduced to a crawl when suddenly a driver got out of his car (on the middle lane no less) and started threatening the driver in front of him - "bring it", "bring it on" .. yadda yadda yadda.

so much anger when everyone has the common goal of .. just trying to get home :roll:

Always seems to be those most in a hurry to get somewhere that have time to stop for a fight :roll:

Just stock standard Sora brakes on the Azzurri, which is a 2012 model!
