    Modern brake systems are complex, and while replacing your brake pads and rotors is a fairly straightforward process, it could go wrong if you aren't sure what you're doing.9 Jan 2018

  • Are brake calipers different for each side?

    Four-piston Calipers

    These calipers have two pistons on each side. Each of the two pistons is smaller in diameter than those used in dual-piston calipers. Two pistons per side more effectively distribute the pressure on the larger pads, increasing the friction. This increased friction slows and stops large vehicles.

  • Can you change rotor size?

    Yes, but there isn't much in it at all. SRAM and Shimano both claim a weight gain of just 20g per rotor when switching from a 140 to a 160mm size, and if your frame is designed to take 160mm rotors natively, you can throw away the adaptor that many setups use.30 Nov 2021

  • Can you put front calipers on the rear?

    Yes, but you'd have to use a 140mm rear rotor(which I do on all my disc bikes) as your correct that the rear is a longer(taller) arm setup. ie. If one gets 2 fronts of any brake I know of=160/140mm setup.31 Jan 2008
  • How hot do your brakes get?

    During normal street use, brake rotors and pads normally won't see temperatures climb past 200 degrees Celsius, or 392 degrees Fahrenheit. However, track days are a different story, with temperatures potentially reaching 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit as the brakes are called upon more often and more aggressively.21 Mar 2017
