WORKSHOP: How and Why to Bed-In Disc Brakes

ELECTRIC SCOOTER WORKSHOP: How and Why to Bed-In Disc Brakes

When you first get a new electric scooter, or you replace your brake pads and/or the disc brake rotors, the brakes need to be bedded in properly. Failure to do so can lead to inconsistent braking and a decrease in the life (and effectiveness) of your brake pads and disc brake rotors.

These two videos were made for cyclists, however they clearly explain why you should bed-in your disc brakes, as well as the relevant principles, theory and methods you can equally apply to your electric scooter.

The 2nd video also explains the differences between organic, ceramic and metallic brake pads.
