Hello :D

One small step for woman-kind and all that....

I changed my brake pads myself for the first time ever today (yay :D ) but dropped the stupidly tiny little clip that fits on the end of the pin (boo :roll: ) - it pinged out of my hands and I can find it.

I have done the pin up fairly tightly and I have checked and I don't seem to have the clips on my other bike (same brakes), but can someone please cinfirm if they are ok to use like this? Can the pin somehow unwind itself without the clip? I want to ride my 5 tomorrow but obviously not if I now have a dodgy front brake :?

Cheers 8)
