When choosing an e-bike for yourself there are a lot of elements that one considers before purchasing your first e-bike. One of these is what types of brakes the bike brings. Whether you know it or not brakes make a big difference on a bike. Specifically whether the bike brings hydraulic or mechanical brakes. The difference of the brakes also leads to a price change due to one being considered “better” than the other although at the end of the day the bike will stop regardless of what brake it brings. In fact, it’s not a matter of which one is better it’s a matter of which one you prefer. So what exactly is the difference between both? Well for starters, you have to keep in mind how you will be using your e-bike. When purchasing a bike you want to make sure that it is equipped with brakes that you feel that you can trust.
