Bicycle Brakes

Quality bicycle brakes are worth their weight in stopping power. Stopping when and where you need to can save you from an accident or a spill.  It is an important safety practice to periodically inspect the brake pads and braking system on your bicycle.

 

Bicycle Brakes Features

 

  • Caliper brakes are the most common type of bicycle brake system.
  • V-brakes are easy to install, especially if the cable and housing are part of the installation.
  • V-brakes are more dependable than no-name brand bicycle brakes.
  • Some brake pads work good in all weather, warm, cold, wet, or dry.
  • The salmon-colored brake shoes are getting good reviews for braking in wet weather without squeaking.
  • Bicycle Brakes Brand Names Shimano, Avid, Sram, Clark's, Hayes, Tektro, Dia-COMPE, Schwinn.

 

Bicycles are set up with factory brakes which are really good when applied in normal riding conditions. Wet conditions can make bicycle brakes less effective. A cyclist should allow more room to stop when riding in the rain or when using a bicycle in extreme conditions. Specific bike brake pads can be fitted to your bicycle to accommodate your biking style.

Bicycle Brakes Benefits

  • Old cantilever brakes are harder to adjust and maintain compared to the v-brake system.
  • V-brakes grip tighter on the wheel rims, they have better braking efficiency.
  • Disk brakes are available for heavy duty braking when mountain biking.
  • Some bicycle brake kits come with 2 spacers to fit most generic forks.

Bicycle Brakes Negatives

  • Some brake levers may have to be changed when replacing the unit because some cables require longer travel.
  • Short levers offer less braking control.
  • Some kits come with only wide spacers; you may need narrow spacers for your bike, or both.
  • Some brake kits have long cables that may need to be cut.
  • Stay safe and enjoy the trails.

I remember when stopping my bike was achieved by jamming my well used sneaker between the fork and the tire, the front tire. This bicycle brakes practice is pretty dangerous and definitely not suggested, especially if you still have your real teeth.
