• Disc brake systems are either hydraulic or cable-operated and consist of wheel hub-mounted rotors, calipers and levers; their main advantage over rim brakes is that they are more powerful in all weather irrespective of your wheel rim condition.  Cable-operated systems are also referred to as mechanical disc brakes, which is what we have here.  So-called ‘road’ cable disc calipers are generally compatible with the road brake levers, while others – found on flat bar bikes & often referred to as ‘mountain’ calipers – require the longer amount of cable pull achieved by v-brake levers; there are exceptions to this of course.  Rotors are generally sized from 140mm to 205mm diameter, larger ones giving more power at the expense of greater weight.  Take care when tuning disc brakes; as my friend Ron states from experience, rotors “also make excellent finger guillotines”…
