Quick Tip #29 – The Only Time You’ll Regret Squeezing On Your Brakes

Hey there Roddo from Sports Adventure again today with another quick tip.

And today’s quick tip a pretty straight forward one, but for mountain bikes with disc brakes very important when you have the wheels removed from the bike and obviously the discs are not in the callipers make sure you don’t squeeze the brake levers pushing the brake pads out of the calliper position.

It can be really, really difficult to get them back into the right position again, may damage the brake pads in doing so and a pretty ordinary experience.

So just make sure you don’t bump those levers when you got the wheels off the bike.

Thanks guys have a great day I know I will.

Stay tuned tomorrow for you next quick tip.
