Are my disc brake pads wearing down?
How can I tell if my disc brakes are wearing down? Every once in a while I hear a humming sound when I brake and, i think, it's from the rear brake. I'd hate to take apart the whole thing down there since I'm not so mechanically inclined. Is there something I should look for with a flashlight?
BTW, these are mechanical disc brakes that came on this used schwinn bike I picked up on CL.
