hello all, I had an encounter with the road a few weeks ago and gained my first set of road rash scars on my left knee and hip ( side note so glad I wear a good cycle helmet as my head bounced off the floor twice) actually quite proud of my encounter with the tarmac as I believe you ain't a true cyclist until you have had such an encounter lol, the thing is I noticed that the brake ( the lever part on the handle bars ) had a little movement that it never had before just a little side to side wobble, not being a tech type of person I have ignored it, but it is getting worse and after a
I've finally worn through my Shimano 105 5700 brake blocks and cant seem to find out what are suitable replacements. Im not sure if i can replace just the braking pad (as the 105 replacements seem to come with the whole block).
Also i'de ideally like to upgrade the pad if possible but am not sure what types will fit.
I should mention i have an alloy braking track on my wheels.
Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
Most here will be familiar with this gear, but for what it's worth, Shimano say 105 'makes “pro-level" technology more accessible to part time racers and fitness enthusiasts. The Shimano 105 concept of "Smooth, Round and Natural" is consistently demonstrated in every component, giving its user a sense of satisfaction, pleasure and fulfilment.'

These are in very good condition, with some cosmetic scratches. However, having had low mileage, they still function superbly.
