    brake pads

    in a pinch is there a good way to re-attach a pad to a shoe if it came off?

    JB weld? Epoxy? Drill and screws?

    Epoxy would probably work...but it would have to be in a pinch. JB weld too. Shoes get really hot...I don't know how the various adhevsives would work. I know JB weld stands up to some very high temps.
    Of course clean both surfaces extremely well.

    If it's your Giro bike...take a shot, you've hopefully still got another brake. If it's anything else I wouldn't chance it.

    yup, its giro. one of the pads fell off today. camelhairy says he has a brandy new set for me, though. front brake. Back brake is better, works great, but i'd rather have both. I'll give em alla shot and report on the results on the way home.

    PS. I know someone in portland who bought Ruffo's mt125.

    What's up with the Gilera...you still have it?

    I might have to buy that someday.

    If the shoe pad came off the shoe , that could be dangerous, the pad can roll inside and break into pieces ....

    I would take it to the placr that refurbished the shoes ( if that ever happened) and if bought new, those should get warranty replaced.

    Probably you got them refurbished , whomever did it did not do a proper job, I never heard about that case. I am sure they will fix them up, they can stick the pad to the shoe , they have the means to do so.

    Good luck.
