Bike Mechanics Disc Brakes Part1 Youtube

This morning's video looks at disc brakes. Great time to take a look at your brakes so your first ride of the season is enjoyable and safe.

As always, safety first! Watch out for long hair or loose clothes in that spinning wheel, and be particularly attentive to where the rotor passes through the caliper - a finger in there could see you with a trip to emergency! Never touch your brake rotors, either. They don't want to be oily.

If you have any questions, please comment on this post.
