The brake calipers are held on by those irritating bolts with 13mm 12-point
heads. On the front ones, you need a long-reach socket to get onto 'em, and
this I have, bought specially for the purpose. Naturally, on the back
calipers, the long socket means you can't get a handle on it 'cos the

my sockets are single hex) for the purpose.
