If you love to ride a bike and a little know how to do it, if you're just an amateur or a pro already – you're sure to find the answer to a simple question: "And what part of the bike, in fact, is the most vital? And the first to answer this question no doubt those who once denied the brakes. Yes, this is it, my dears. And in the world today are of the opinion that the brakes are of two types – foot and hand. Well, before, before the advent of mountain bikes, it was like and dostatochno.Ved on sport bikes were hand-brake to slow down and you just need to press his hands on a special handle on the handlebar. And for children and road bikes to achieve the same result should be a little bit to turn the pedals in the opposite direction. And your bicycle must stop (unless, of course, everything works fine). What brought us to Western civilization this area along with new-fangled mountain bike? Only one answer, she brought us a large variety of types tormozov.Deystvitelno for a modern bike brakes are many varieties. If we talk about as a whole brakes, you should start to clarify what these are the most brakes? A very simple, by definition, bicycle brakes, or rather to say, a bicycle brake – it's part of the bicycle, which designed to regulate (slow) speed of motion.
Bike brakes are of various kinds: rim, disc, drum, pedal, roller. But it is the most widely used rim, Disc brakes and the pedal. One of the most ubiquitous types of brakes (not to say that the most common) for mountain bikes, primary and secondary levels to date are the rim brakes – 'No Boss Option'. Popularity among a large Number of cyclists this type of braking provided by several factors, among them: their high efficiency, easy to install and maintain and at the same low price that nemalovazhno.Bolee too, these brakes have certain advantages. such as low load on the spokes and the hub due to the fact that the force applied against the rim, No Boss Option heated less than disc brakes, because that the area of the rim more than the disc, and linear velocity above the rim. In addition, the mass of rim brakes less than that of the disk, but it also sometimes makes a difference. Rim brakes squeeze on both sides of the rim bicycle Wheel brake pads, slowing its rotation. Compressive force is transmitted via cable, stretched from the brake lever, placed on the handlebars.
They are divided into three models: Mechanical: such as 'No Boss Option', V-brake – the most popular model today, V-shaped mounting arm with brake pads, and 'crab', U-brake – less common and outdated model, U-shaped levers. Kantlivernye brakes – this is an old model, the predecessor V-brake'a. And hydraulic. This type of rim brake also includes a power transmission cable, but the brake pads are pressed directly against the rim hydraulic mechanism.
