First you have to make sure your wheels are installed in place. For non-bucket axle wheels, first, confirm whether your wheels have been installed in place. Open the quick release, press the frame with your body, and then lock the quick release in place. Incorrect installation will cause the disc to tilt against the disc. For the barrel axle wheelset, before adjusting the position of the brake caliper, the barrel axle rod must be locked to a predetermined torque and then adjusted to prevent the disc position from changing after disassembling the wheelset.
Today, when disc brakes are becoming more and more popular, disc brake rotors with various patterns are flooding the market. So, have you ever considered that the pattern on the disc brake rotor is just for good looks or weight reduction? Does it have other important uses? If so, is there some kind of optimal ratio setting between these hollow styles and the material? The best here I think is more about performance, not just about aesthetics. I believe you have the same views as me. In addition, is there a relationship between these hollows on the heat dissipation, torque resistance, and deformation probability of the disc? Let's take a look at how the technical staff of the major brake suppliers explains.
1. Wipe the disc brake disc with a dirty cloth
Wiping the bicycle with a rag is the habit of most cyclists, but never wipe the disc brake disc with a dirty rag. Dirty things on a single disc brake disc will affect the brake performance.
2. The disc brake disc is stuck with oil
We all know that the brake parts cannot be oiled, but accidents are always inevitable, so everyone should be careful when oiling the parts of the bicycle, and don't put the oil on the disc brake disc.
3. Don't touch the disc brake
The disc brake discs that have just experienced cycling brakes will more or less have some temperature, so don't touch them after cycling to avoid burns. Some friends may think that the disc brake disc may be hot, but cycling downhill for a long time is really hot.
In addition, it is not recommended to touch it, especially the end part, because the disc brake disc may become like a knife after a long time.
Many novice friends don't like or are afraid to use the front brake. In fact, the front brake is still very useful. Especially in the case of emergency braking, the front brake is more efficient than the rear brake. But you need to pay attention to two issues. The focus should be shifted back if you don't want to fly out.
Also, the brakes are now very easy to lock, so be sure to pay attention when using the front brake. This can be felt slowly while riding.
If it is downhill, you can't just use the front brake, you need front and rear cooperation.
It is not recommended to use the front brake when cornering. It is easy to slip. When using the front brake, the wheels must be straight.
The trend of using disc brakes on the road bike has gradually transitioned from the controversy in previous years to become popular now. Stronger braking force, more stable wheel fixation methods, and technological progress have reduced the weight of the groupset, which has led to the mass promotion of disc brake road bikes, and some major manufacturers have radically eliminated the rim brakes when they launched new models and type. There are many ways to install and drive disc brakes. Let's take a look at the popular science, so that more riders have a clear understanding, and there are information for reference when upgrading or choosing their own tanks in the future.
Generally speaking, 140mm and 160mm discs are mostly used in road bike brakes. 160mm discs have stronger braking force, can better cope with certain situations, and can also ensure the best braking effect. In addition, a larger disc heat dissipation area is also larger, which can further improve the overall performance of the brake. The 140mm disc is the most aesthetic standard, but if many riders weigh more than 80kg, the braking force of 140mm discs is not enough for them, so you can use the front 160mm rear 140mm configuration, the overall center of the brake is The front brake is more dependent on the braking force of the front brake. If the rear wheel is relatively strong and the rear wheel locks and slips, it is not a good thing. Therefore, it is also a feasible solution to configure the rear wheel with 140 discs with weaker braking force. Weight reduction of the whole bike.
