Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Brakes, Rotors, & Upgrades | EP 122

Posted by on

Welcome back to another incredible episode of the Area 13 EBikes Podcast. If you're new to the show, this is the best place to learn all about electric bikes, products related to them, the people behind the scenes, and so much more. I'm Jessica part of the team with Area 13 EBikes, and on today's episode you'll learn more about the importance of high quality brakes and the components that go into the entire set up.

I'm also going to talk a bit about how to set that up on your ebike. This is a really important topic because we believe your safety is a big deal. Staying safe also increases your fun factor. 

So listen into this episode for other ways to protect your investment, and don't forget to listen to the end for a very special announce.

Size really does matter when it comes to rotors on your e-bike, but there's a lot more that goes into the story, so tune in and let's get going. 

You're listening to the Area 13 EBikes Podcast.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • What are the differences between the different sizes of rotors and how that can make a difference in your stopping power. 
  • How can you easily upgrade your brakes from mechanical to hydraulic in a matter of minutes. 
  • Why would you want a full hydraulic set up over a caliper. 
  • How do the full hydraulic brakes work? 
  • Information from our sponsor, Oyster Insurance on how to protect your investment and why it’s important.
  • When is the monthly sale happening with Area 13 Ebikes?
  • And so much more! 

We'd love to help you get upgraded. And help you get into a bike that you love. We love sharing more about ebikes and I love speaking with people about ebikes as well.
