Brake pad installation and adjustment
- Author: Brett Hartt
- Difficulty: Moderate
Brakes slow your bike down when you pull on the brake lever on the handlebar. The brake calipers are connected to the brake levers by a cable that squeezes the brake-pads that are attached to the brake calipers. When the brake pads contact the rims they slow down the rim of the wheel, slowing down the bike.
