How long will the brake pads last?
Depending on your riding style and environment you may need to replace the brake pads from time to time. This time could range from a year if you are a heavy usage urban rider to not ever having to replace the brake pads.
We recommend that brake pad wear is checked every 3 months, or every 500 miles, whichever is sooner.
You should replace the brake pads when the pad material is 0.9mm or less (not including the metal backing).
We recommend that only pads purchased from Gocycle are installed. To find out which brake pads to use, see this article.
How do I change the brake pads?
You can find full instructions of how to replace the pads in the relevant Gocycle Product Manual here. If you are not experienced with bicycle maintenance, we recommend that you consult a Gocycle Reseller or bicycle technician and be sure to provide the technician the Gocycle Owner’s Manual as a reference.
