Our Daily Cycling Tip

Stop Watch - Don't forget to regularly check your brake pads. Look at the surfaces. When new, most pads have grooves in them. When these grooves start to disappear, it's a sign to replace the pads. Depending on the design some are easily replaced, others require tools and know-how. We're happy to advise if you have questions.
