The Gobike has Tektro (Ho or Io ?) mechanical discs, front and rear. They work well enough, but wondering what the relative advantages/disadvantages are compared to hydraulic. I noticed that Tektro only has hydros on their site, so maybe the cable ones are for OEM. I guess my main concern is whether pads are going to be a problem in the future.
If hydros are preferred, any one brand/model better than another, and any to stay away from? Are the disc diameter and mounting bracket a factor?
