    5800 brakes are apparently more powerful then the 5700's.

    I found the standard Shimano pads to be quite shocking, especially in the wet.

    2014 Defy 1?

    Slowish 50km loop - home, south to city, out to coast, back up the coast and home.

    Two F18's doing a few low passes along the coast makes the ride a little more awesome :)

    Think I did that after fitting it all back together on my SLX's. Even if you don't the fluid will just bubble out around the edge of the reservoir cover after a few squeezes of the brake.

    Also depends on hardware security devices and how long it takes for their blacklists/etc to realise it's safe again. Netgear's takes freaking ages.

    Take syringe to shop and try hose/tubing for size?
