So I've just gotten a new bike which has disk brakes, and it's my first time using disk brakes. One of the brake pads is rubbing a little on the rotor, so I decided to turn the barrel on the lever anti-clockwise to "take some tension off the cable" (bear with me).
When I pulled the lever and fluid shot out I became aware of 2 things:
- there is no "cable" because my brakes are hydraulic.
- I'm an idiot.
The brake still works but now that there's fluid missing do I need to top it up?
(I also need to learn about hydraulic brakes).
