Notices, Workshops & Rides: Gravel Roads & Brake Care
Hello All,
As a few other people have mentioned, we have had brake pad noise, as well as heat and smells. We have learned that much of this is caused by the grit that comes with gravel-based roads.
Two tips that worked for us:
1) Drive in reverse and tap the brakes
2) Drive forward over speed bumps while pumping the brakes.
Voila! Heat, sound and smell gone in moments.
Take care, Edward
