Cable or hydraulic disc brake?
The cable-operated brakes are easier to maintain than you can easily do yourself. Cables under tension put pressure on the pads on the disc. Hydraulic brakes require a little more know-how to maintain, we recommend having it done by a bicycle professional. This system is the one for hiking and outings at sustained speed where you will benefit from increased power for less effort on the brake levers. Braking is more progressive and you can better manage your speed in all circumstances.
