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.
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.
yeah, I love it . . . but it has one of those weird charging systems that i think has to be magnetized. I'll figure it out eventually . . . then i can't selll it to you. I need someone who knows those systems. The regulator is OK, etc.
Maybe I just need to change it over to a different system. If that's possible.
That's what I was going to suggest...find something else that will work on it. There is also places that will rework your shit to more modern specs.
The Dellorto on my 106 was a nightmare...I gave up on it and replaced it with a 20mm Keihin...freakin starts first kick, runs like a champ and I never even had to change jets. Major difference in ridability.
I'm impressed by the Gileras, very, very nice quality for an inexpensive Italian bike.
