    The stand light on mine is also not working, but it was like that when i bought it second hand, thought that maybe these lights don't even have one. Will try to contact the supernova support then, it seems there is no easy fixes that i could do myself. thanks for the hint

    So my supernova pure front light failed and is not sending any power to rear light, but it still shines well. So was wondering is there any way to connect the rear supernova light directly to the dynamo hub? maybe soldering a resistor or something inline (not a electrician, but can solder basic stuff)

    Yep, well that makes sense and did quite a lot of road riding in SF, i guess tarmac wears the tyre
    way more quickly than dirt

    Thanks for the nice feedback ;>
    while inspecting the rear tyre, noticed that the wear is mostly on the left side, has anyone encountered this before? or am i just cycling crooked

    Also flew bike with me to a trip to San francisco , there is soo many good places to ride there, just be warned - its not flat at all, had alot of grinding to do with 32x42 easiest gear, but the views took my mind of it :> while being there bought bagsxbird bag to carry my stuff around, i like it way more than the basket i had before, no more rattles.

    Update on the build
    It was performing great, but the paint was in a sad shape with alot of scratches and burn marks from extra bits that were welded on. Did not want to spend money on a new powder coat paint, so decided to strip the paint with a paint remover(that i already had on hand) and spayed a few coats of clear lacquer on top. Quite chuffed how it turned out, not sure how long will it hold tough.

    When i bought avids, they came with the adapters. Shimano did not. I guess it depends

    There is this shop, that does some crazy discounts, you could hunt around there. Currently they a have a sale on sram level brakes just 14eur. but only the front,so you would need a new hose for the back. Also they have cheap shimano m315, nothing fancy but for a commuter who cares :) I just dont know if they ship to UK.

    Thats one big boy caliper, the lower bolt was definitely filed away. Shimano fit just fine, there is quite some wiggle room, attaching a better photo of the caliper. If i were you i would try what alsoPhilDAS suggested - fit a 180 rotor, there seems to be room, and it would be the least expensive way to sort this.
