Hydraulic Brake service options

email:rule4cycles@gmail.com
Many new bikes are now coming with Hydraulic Disc brakes to improve the stopping capabilities  of the bike and rider. These units use oils that are susceptible to ageing and water absorption, and should have the oil replaced at regular intervals - normally every year. In addition the seals inside the units may age and need replacing every few years otherwise oil leaks past and the brakes stop working effectively.

These are essential SAFETY aspects of your bike and should be maintained and serviced regularly BEFORE they go wrong.

Brake work really needs to be carried out in the workshop due to oils/fluids used and so if bikes need to bee collected and returned an additional mileage fee will also be incurred.
