Things to Know About Bike Brakes Parts

A bike brake reduces the speed of your bike and prevents it from moving. There are three different types of brakes: disc brakes, rim brakes and drum brakes. Disc brakes use callipers, when you squeeze the brake levers, the brake pads inside the callipers squeeze the discs and slow down the wheel. Today, almost all modern bikes come with disc brakes. Shimano, Sram, Mavic, DT Swiss, and RockShox are renowned manufacturers of bike brakes parts and components.
Bike brakes are an important bike part that should be clean, in good condition and adjusted rightly before every ride. However, after lots of miles on the roads, disc brakes lose some of their effectiveness over time. It could be dangerous when the bike brakes take longer response times which results in less efficient braking and power control on the bike.

How to Check Brake Assemblies

Brake assemblies consist of brake pads and brake callipers. As a result of aggressive riding, crashes or accidents, these assemblies can get out of proper position. Hence, they should be regularly checked to make sure that all the bike components are moving freely and properly assembled including bolts and nuts.
