How-To Tip, Simple Plastic Brake Washers

Sure you can get these at almost any hardware store, but then they are just a part. These are made with some OS bike pride. big_smile I cut a plastic soda bottle, and laid the piece under a book to flatten (not really necessary). Circled a dime with a Sharpie, cut with scissors, and used a hole punch for the middle. Simple, and quick if you just need something to work. A little grease helps of course. They are a perfect fit under all the other hardware. You can even get creative, and use colored bottles too. lol

My Father once spoke to me and said "The way you look at your bike is the way I see My children, I look past the imperfections and rough surfaces to the beauty of the finished product."
