2
21 riders found this useful!

In order to adjust the from or the rear disc brakes you first need to understand the built of a disc Caliper. The Disc Caliper comes with two types of pads, the inner and the outer pad. The outer pad is the moving pad wherein the inner pad is a stationery pad. You will find a wire clamping bolt in the rear of the Disc Caliper and a barrel adjuster in the front. To manage the space between the inner and the outer pads, you will need a 5mm Allen key. To tighten the pads, you will need to use the Allen key clockwise and vice versa.

To adjust the disc brakes, you need to loosen the wire clamping bolt. Post that, pull the cable and make sure that there aren’t any lags in the cable. Always note that the Disc Caliper should be parallel to the disc rotor. You need to slightly loosen the Caliper alignment bolts and then using the 5mm Allen key tighten the inner pad making sure that the disc rotor moves freely without rubbing against either of the pads. Now rotate the wheel and hit the brakes and hold on to it until you finish tightening the Disc Caliper alignment bolts. If you are still facing friction with the movement, try loosening the inner pad so that the disc rotor gets adjusted for frictionless movement. For minute adjustment of the outer pad, you can move the barrel adjuster clockwise to loosen it and anti-clockwise to tighten the outer pad. For an in-depth explanation please check the video below.

Now with the help of a 10 mm spanner loosen the wire holding bolt and you will see that the wire will come out automatically. Once the wire is out, you need to remove the caliper holding bolts with the help of a 5 mm allen key. While attaching the new caliper make sure to attach it within the centre point on the frame for better experience. Now attach the caliper holding bolt with bare hands and then tighten it with the help of a 5 mm allen key. With the help of a 6 mm allen loosen the brake pad bolt in order to align it correctly making sure its parallel with the wheel and then tighten it again. Now attach the spring in its holder and take the brake wire through the wire clamping bolt and slightly tighten the bolt with the help of a spanner. Attach the other side of the caliper to the wire and tighten the wire clamping bolt. In case you find either of them not moving then you can either tighten the screw on the non-moving part or loosen the screw on the moving part. As you are tightening the non-moving part continuously hit the brakes to ensure both the caliper and the lever are moving together. For an in-depth explanation please check the video below.

To change the disc pads, we recommend removing the disc caliper using a 5 mm allen key. Once the caliper is removed, straighten the lock on the caliper with the help of a plier and remove the pin out. Now you can slightly push the disc pads in order to remove them. While replacing the pads, make sure that the size and the pattern of the new pads are same as that of the old ones. Attach the new pads in the opposite direction and insert the pin which was removed earlier and lock it again with the help of a plier. You can now install the caliper back on the frame with the help of the caliper alignment bolts and a 5 mm allen. For an in-depth explanation please check the video below.

How to tune rear disc brake?

25 riders found this useful!

To adjust your rear disc brake, you need to loosen the wire clamping bolt. Post that, pull the cable and make sure that there aren’t any lags in the cable. You need to slightly loosen the caliper alignment bolts and then using the 5mm Allen key tighten the inner pad making sure that the disc rotor moves freely without rubbing against either of the pads. Now rotate the wheel and hit the brakes and hold on to it until you finish tightening the disc caliper alignment bolts. If you are still facing friction with the movement, try loosening the inner pad so that the disc rotor gets adjusted for frictionless movement. For an in-depth explanation please check the video below.

Geared-Cycle

What is the use of a gear cycle?

20 riders found this useful!

A cycle with gears lets you choose the gear ratio depending on the terrain you are riding on. For instance, if you are riding on a slope, a lower gear ratio lets you ride uphill easily by increasing your pedalling rate while decreasing your effort. You can also shift gears on a plain road to increase your RPM (rotations per minute) without pedalling too hard. Geared bicycles in India are a great investment if you are truly passionate about cycling and pursue it a little further than leisure riding.

For instance, if you are riding on a slope, a lower gear ratio lets you ride uphill easily by increasing your pedalling rate while decreasing your effort.

Should I pedal when changing gears?

15 riders found this useful!

Yes, you must pedal while you change gears. That's because the chain has to be moving in order for the derailleurs to "derail" the chain from sprocket to sprocket. Pedal at a brisk pace. A brisk pace improves your stamina on a longer ride, and it enables you to “jump” if you need to suddenly move quickly. Plus, this technique is easier on your bicycle. Third, and this is hugely important, lighten the pressure on the pedals when you shift. You still have to be pedalling while you shift gears, but don't be pedalling hard as you change them. Lightening the pressure on the pedals facilitates a much smoother, more quiet shift. This technique too is easier on your bicycle.

How does a gear make my bike easy to ride / How does a gear work?

12 riders found this useful!

Gears on a bicycle are one of those lovely inventions that allow us to ride faster, get up hills more easily and allow us to get a lot more enjoyment out of our riding. Gears convert the effort you put in at the pedals to a certain output at your wheel. There's only so much force your muscles can produce and usually an optimum cadence (how fast you spin your pedals) at which you will be most efficient. The size of the gears, and how they are combined, determines how many times the rear wheel turns and how far you travel with every pedal stroke. If you have your chain on the smaller chainring and it has 25 teeth, along with a rear cog of the same the wheels rotate once for every pedal stroke. It's a 1:1 gear ratio. If you shift to your big chainring, and it has 50 teeth, then that's a 2:1 ratio. Then every pedal stroke makes the wheels rotate twice. A lower, easier gear, with the smaller chainring up front and a larger cog in the back, lets you accelerate faster. This helps you get started from a stop, or when you are climbing a steep hill. The higher, harder gear (big chain ring, small cog) helps you increase your top speed, but requires more work and muscle to accelerate.

43 riders found this useful!

You must ensure that your cycle is clean not only to maintain basic cleanliness but also for your safety when riding on steep slopes. If you have been riding in the hills/mountains and have been caught in rain, then you should definitely wash your bicycle everyday that you spend there. Cleaning a bicycle s just like washing your car/cycle, use a garden hose to clean it, apply soapy water with a brush and scrub away all the grit and grime from the frame, wheels and drive-train.

Brake

What is a Disc Brake?

8 riders found this useful!

Disc brakes have come a long way in the last 10 years. They have really evolved into a brake that will stop a tandem as well as a cantilever. A disc brake consists of a metal disc, or "rotor", attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Calipers are attached to the frame or fork along with pads that squeeze the rotors for braking. As the pads drag against the rotor, the wheel - and thus the bicycle - is slowed. Disc brakes may be actuated mechanically by cable, or hydraulically.

What is a V Brake?

8 riders found this useful!

"Linear-pull brakes" or "direct-pull brakes", commonly referred to as "V-brakes", are a side-pull version of cantilever brakes and mount on the same frame bosses. However, the arms are longer, with the cable housing attached to one arm and the cable to the other. As the cable pulls against the housing, arms are drawn together. V-brakes were specifically designed for off-road use on a mountain cycle.

What is a Cantilever Brake?

9 riders found this useful!

A cantilever, technically, is a structural element supported at one end. A cantilever brake is a rim brake where each brake arm has the brake shoe and the cable attachment, both on the same side of the support (the pivot). So that the cable can come from above the tire, the pivot must be below the brake shoe, attached to the frame. Cantilever brakes were used on touring cycles and tandems for decades before mountain cycles were even invented. The cantilever evolved into an extremely powerful and reliable braking system.

20 riders found this useful!

Yes, Electric Cycle can be used without pedalling when you shift to the throttle mode. Although, it is not recommended to do this for a long duration as it will considerably reduce the range and of course, it will beat the whole purpose of cycling. Pedal-assist mode is much more fun than throttle mode.

Motor

Does cycling with a motor make sense at all?

22 riders found this useful!

In pedal-assist mode, the motor gives a boost to your pedalling effort. The idea of providing a motor is to reduce tension in your body when you are tired. You can easily push back to the pedal-assist mode and continue pedalling. So, riding an Electric bicycle is definitely not cheating. It just enables you to do a lot more with a bike.
