Excellent news on the MoT. We've had to have the brakes roller tested here for a long time now although I can't remember when it came in for bikes. Don't recall my ancient old BSA M21 having it done but that was nearly 25 years ago. It's come in since then.

It's very satisfying doing your on maintenance on the bike. Regarding the brakes have a look at ]this thread which explains why brakes stick and why you can end up with a lot of lever travel/sponginess. I love the feel and the sharpness of my brakes when I've just serviced them.
