The brakes are probably the most crucial element that explains about the safety of the rider. A precise, accurate, and quickest type of brake can assure the all-condition safety of the rider.
For a versatile commuter bike, the brakes should be precise and offering quick complete stopping because, with multiple gearing systems, the rider always needs a supportive braking system.
Majorly, general commuter bikes feature two types of brakes, the disc brakes, and the Rim brakes or the linear-pull brakes.
The Disc brakes are great for hardcore riders and hence are comparatively expensive. They are highly efficient and hence, difficult to maintain.
The Rim Brakes, on the other hand, are standard and common. They suffice the casual rider or slow commuters and work by holding the wheel’s rim.
