From memory there is a clip on the pin on the inner side of the caliper but I'll have to go and have a Squizzy. It's early in the morning and I'm barely awake. Once it's off the pin can be knocked out from the inner side.
You removed both wheels at the same time?
If i recall correctly, Front pads have the clip and pins. Rear pads require unscrewing a bolt.
Thanks, Pete,It's 6 pm here (Wed evening) and I'm thru fooling with it any more today. But looking forward to your comments.BTW, do you have any 'hints' for reinstalling front and rear wheels on these CARC bikes, specifically the 12S? I had a spare front axle I could insert to help align the right side while pushing the axle thru from the left side. Can't find it!My only 'shadetree' solutions are to put bike on center stand, and use a couple of scissor jacks to adjust the height on front, then rear, so things are aligned. There must be a better way! It's very tedious.Bob
Semi-success. I was able to remove the retainer pin by simply taking a countersink punch and tapping steadily (not really hard,) and finally, out it came. I tapped from the outer side of the caliper toward the bike side. What popped out was the pin with what looks almost like a small compression fitting with a slit cut in it. I think that's the part that holds the pin in place. I believe that's the piece Huzo called an 'annular type expanding spring.' BTW, thanks Huzo. That was a good tip.Problem now is getting the new pads back in the caliper, and staying in place so I can get the pin thru them. I know my comments on this issue make me sound like an amateur. I'm not. Just can't figure out why I'm having these difficulties with such simple problems.Bob
PS - Huzo, I cleaned the gunk off the pin by chucking it into a 1/4 inch drill, spinning it while holding a 3M abrasive pad around it. Got a bit warm!
I went back in time, to a set of Pilot Road 2, on front and rear. As I posted elsewhere on WG, I kept going back to PR3s (3 sets,) but went to a set of PR4s when 3's went away. They did not work out for me. Probably a personal thing. Did not feel like trying the PR5s.
I did. Appears you got good service out of them.Bob
