    Help please! I've set myself the task of replacing my rear brake pads but I've fallen at the first hurdle. I can't for the life of me see how to get the pad retaining pin out. I can't see any threads / hex heads like on my other bikes. I can just about see a tiny hole where I guess an r-clip...
