I replaced my rear tire last weekend and in the process, forgot to put the little spring clips back in the brake caliper. I know how one goes in but not the other and the parts list doesn't clarify it enough.

Could someone post a pic of the forward edge of their brake caliper showing the position of those spring clips?

Here's my how to...

Step 1: Get something out to cut brake lines
Step 2: Cut your rear brake line
Step 3: Throw away your rear brake caliper
Step 4: Go riding and use your front brakes only

Studies show that it will now reduced the drag on you're rear wheel and increase your top speed 30%. Beside the front discs do 70% of your braking anyways. So if you never exceed 70% of your total top speed you will never need to use your rear brakes. Feel free to do some engine braking if you really come into a turn hot and the front brakes aren't enough.

I suppose I should get rid of my two-speed whitewalls at the same time ...
