i have finally been fit enough to have ago on my new focus fat boy, i like it very much, very comfortable and seems to do the job well, i am new to hydraulic brakes though, and the manual has said to bed the pads in and ride gently, how far roughly should i be taking it easy for, till the brakes will bed in?
i have used v-brakes for ages and they can lock the wheel quite easily, are disc brakes as powerful? and should i see the brakes improve once they bed in?
sorry to ask such a noobie questrion but we all have to learn from somehwhere
