Having a good set of hydraulic disc brakes on your mountain bike is one of the key components that allows you to go as fast as you can on the trail. Without a strong set of brakes to slow you own, dropping in to steep and fast terrain is much more dangerous. The brake pads specifically are another wear item on your bike and should be changed when worn down. Understanding the different kinds of brake pads available will help you make the right decision when getting yourself some new pads. W are going to break down the differences between organic and metal Shimano mountain bike brake pads.
With two huge brake brands on the market that each produce the highest quality of brakes available, it can be very tricky deciding which brand you want to go with. Shimano and SRAM have long dominated the braking industry, and for a good reason. Each of these brands deliver the widest selection of mountain bike brakes and all of their products are designed with consistency, power and durability. So that brings up one of the biggest questions in the mountain biking industry- Which brand should I choose?
Like all components available in the world of mountain biking, there are different sizes and styles for everything. Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what parts you need for the style of riding that you enjoy. A very common dilemma when designing your dream bike, is what width of handlebar you should be riding.
Are you still rocking an "old school" 10 speed setup on your ride? At TBS Bike Parts we understand that upgrading to an 11 or 12 speed setup can be very costly which is why we still stock multiple 10 speed items, so you can have the opportunity to upgrade your bike with new parts, without having to completely change your entire drivetrain.
Picking out the right set of tires is imperative if you want to ensure that you have the proper grip you need to accommodate your riding style. With two huge players in the industry, Maxxis and Schwalbe, and so many options offered by both companies, it can be hard making the right decision. Here is some important information about both companies that should help you make a better informed decision for your tire purchase!
SRAM has always been a leading innovator when it comes to high-tech mountain biking technology. Last year SRAM introduced the GX product line available in 11 speed as well as 7 speed, the first 7 speed drivetrain in years that was designed strictly for downhill riding efficiency. SRAM had also pushed the limits by introducing the first ever 12 speed groupset, Eagle XX1 followed by X01. Of course Eagle consists of top-of-the-line components and comes with a hefty price tag so despite the drivetrain freedom that comes with a 1x12 setup, it was overlooked by many riders. Available now at TBS Bike Parts is the brand new SRAM GX Eagle 12 Speed drivetrain, providing the same benefit as XX1 or X01 Eagle but at a fraction of the cost, making it much more affordable for every day riders. By switching to SRAM GX Eagle 12Speed, you can experience the light-weight, diverse and efficient drivetrain setup that SRAM has perfected, all without breaking the bank. All of this and more at TBS Bike Parts!
