That story did not end the way I thought it would. I actually kind of chuckled at the end.
Soon as I get my composure back and have a minute to think about it, I might have some advice.

Maybe she cut the brake line.

What kind of phone does she have? You might be able to track it or better yet hack it and use the camera to get pictures.

P.S. I've been there. The local Spy shop has lots of neat gadgets.

Bo, that is the damn funniest thing I've read! Classic....

On to the caliper - *if* that is for real, I just rebuilt my front calipers with stainless Pistons from RDS. If you do go that route versus R&R (remove and replace), make SURE you get the genuine seal kit and don't use the generic seal kit.

Thanks Jason, I'll keep that in mind in case things get worse.

Last time I checked the genuine kit was on backorder, but I don't think it was indefinite backorder. I need to rebuild my front callipers. They don't stick, but they also won't fully compress.

I did this maybe a month ago, George had them in stock (the genuine seal kits).
