How to Use Bicycle Accessories : Disc Brakes for Mountain Bikes


JEFF COOK: Hello, and I am Jeff Cook from
All Season Sports, here today to talk to you about some of the latest and greatest and
some of the coolest stuff for bikes on behalf of Expert Village. Today, we’re going to be
talking about disc brakes for the mountain bike. You’ve probably seen these out there.
They’re being featured on bicycles much more these days, and they’ve been around now for
a few years. We’ve made some great advancements in this area. One of the cutting edge and
longest active companies in this area would be the drilling company Magura. Magura has
a full-featured brake here in the Marta SL, also being the latest weight full disc brake
out on the market right now. It’s featuring a carbon fiber lever with an aluminium main
body and aluminium calipers to it. This particular one as I mentioned is a hydraulic disc brake
and works very well in both stopping power and keeping it nice and lightweight, and what
a cool upgrade to your mountain bike.

  1. how much is it for a bike with disk brakes and light weight bike as well because i am not sure if it can take my weight

  2. disc brakes arent really an accesory. they are brakes, without them you would not be able to ride a bike safely. unless you have v brakes on ur bike of course

  3. God dammit i dont know how to use my disk brakes!!! I have no idea what these levers are on my handlebars but thank god this video told me how to use my brakes. Very good explanation. Thnx. Dickwad cumface pile of shit.

  4. is it normal that my front disc brake isin't powerful at all? it just slows down the bike and takes some time for the bike to stop. my back brakes are a lot more powerfull but they are linear pull brakes. i have tried tightning the screw that aproaches the disc brake to the braking mecanism but it is tighened t the max. what should i do and why is it like that?
