Hi guys just a quick question, what's the difference between disc brakes and normal rim brakes, I'm waiting on a new bike and it has disc brakes which I've never had on a bike so just curious.

    For one, their much better (especially for mountain biking) when riding through puddles and mud as they will initially stop quicker because they will have less moisture/grime on the braking surface than rim brakes.
