At best this means that they will have to fiddle with it to free it up and fit new pads - 1.5 hours of labour. At worst it will destroy the arm in the process but they can't be bought separately from the caliper, so that would be £225 new. Or I could get a second hand one but that would come to about the same with the labour to free the inevitably siezed caliper.
So it could be 70-80 odd quid or it could be more like 300 including having a spare bike for the few days while they order one. Bum. Fingers crossed eh? Bang go my plans of getting out of debt *sigh*.
Still it's the weekend. Hopefully we'll get rid of a load of rubbish out of kissycat1000's house and start being able to sort out what's left :)
