Honestly, no.

It would depend on how much damage to the wheels has been done.

If they are within re-true limits then thats what you'll have to live with.

No different if YOU crashed and ha ...

It won't pull out from the drive side if the non drive side nut and cone are still attached - which they will be until you take the disc off (if halfords couldn't figure that out, i'd be avoiding the ...

You'll not get far without removing the disc and cassette first Wink

You'll need a chainwhip and cassette lockring tool for cassette removal and just the cassette lockring tool for centrelock d ...

Dont need to see pics, they are possibly the worst type of disc brake caliper. The two spring loaded screws are used to centre the caliper over the disc.

Top cap is used to preload fork bearings before you tighten the stem clamp bolts.

Second bit doesnt make sense.

Chains are always under tension, no matter what gear you are in. Sit on a static bike and stand up, now try and move the chain, you'll be lucky if it moves 10mm.

Do you try to power up climbs in a ...

Brakes are hit and miss in terms of how they feel, some are either on or off when you pull the lever, some have good modulation.

Halfords don't assemble the brakes, just like any other shop doesn't ...
