How to replace brake pads

The appalling weather of the last few months is likely to have placed bicycle maintenance at the top of your agenda, particularly if you’ve been hoping to save money on mechanic’s bills. The bicycle is still a beautifully simple device and most procedures can be carried out by the home mechanic – like replacing brake pads, for instance.

Brake pad replacement is a simple matter – when you know how

We checked in to the workshop of independent bike shop, Ride, to get the inside track on pad replacement from mechanic Jon Hayes in the latest of our series of maintenance edits. From the importance of correct shoe orientation to cable tension adjustment once your new, thicker pads are in place, Jon covers it all. Follow his advice by following this link.
