Bedding Brakes: Why it Matters and How it’s Done

Bedding brake pads on your bicycle is a critical step in optimizing the performance of the braking system.

Not only does bedding in your brake pads improve your bike’s stopping power, but it also extends the lifespan of your brake pads and rotors. In this article, we will discuss the importance of bedding in brake pads and provide a step-by-step guide on how to do it properly.
