It can be said that the brake is the most important part of our riding. Therefore, we must cultivate to check the bicycle before every ride to ensure the good performance of the brake and our riding safety.
1. Check the brake lever
Before setting off, squeeze the brake lever to check the brake stroke. If the brake lever touches the handlebar, then we should pay attention. For the line brake, check the wiring of each line port to see if there is any loosening of the line port. Of course, low-end cheap brakes are always soft and do not have a hard feeling, as long as we can get through Provide enough braking force, normal braking is fine.
2. Clean the brake blocks in time
If you have been riding on a muddy mountain road, or if the riding environment is harsh and dusty, or if it is rainy, then we must clean our brake system in time. Because in the above riding environment, our brakes are often stained with some fine sand. If this kind of sand is not cleaned up in time, it will be very harmful to the brake system. And pay attention to the lubrication of the adapter between the brake handle and the brake caliper.
