When was the last time you checked and changed your brake pads? Even if you ride a fixed gear bike it’s sensible to have at least one brake set up and regularly maintained. If you feel like your stopping distances are increasing then it’s time to properly service your brakes—this is vital for the safety of yourself and others.
We stock V-brake callipers, levers and pads to work with all of our road bikes. In our experience a properly adjusted set of V-brakes (rim brakes) will offer a close level of braking power to cable disc brakes. V-brakes have stood the test of time and don’t appear to be going away any time soon.
