Teddy’s Choice #14

Written on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 about Accessories, Teddy's Choice
Teddy wants your brakes to work when you get where you are going.

Hitch-type bike racks are easier to load and they allow the bikes to draft behind your vehicle improving fuel economy. The downside is that your bike is being continuously doused in dust, dirt and, if it’s raining moisture. Unless you own an electric car, your bike is also being exposed to exhaust gasses which contain traces of oil and un-burned hydrocarbons that stick to the braking surface. Once that gets on your disc rotors then your brake pads get contaminated resulting in noisy and/or poor braking performance.

To avoid that, Teddy recommends the Muc-Off Disc Brake covers. These handy 2-sided discs easily velcro to each other with your brake disc rotors sandwiched in between keeping them nice and clean.

Speaking of clean…Muc-Off’s disc rotor covers are a great way to protect your brake rotors from contamination from cleaning solvents and lubricants when you clean your bike. We have them in stock for $49.99.
