Brake pads on disc brakes wear out. Hey, they are suppose to. So what do you do when it comes time to change them? It can be a bit confusing.

  1. What does your comment have to do with brake pads? It should have been posted here … https://tadpolerider2.wordpress.com/2019/09/18/lights-cheaper-better-cant-beat-that/. As far as mounting the lights it is pretty simple … the white headlight mounts on the front facing forward and the red tail light mounts on the back facing rearward.
