I've done some 50km on the highway without braking and when approaching the
exit a sorprise expected me. Brake lever was hard and braking effect almost
none!!!! Fortunately i slowed down enaugh before to manage to stop just
before the gate with the help of the hand brake! The weather was cold, just
below freezing with the road wet and full of salt.
Once stopped i tried to pump the brake lever that seemed obstructed and
strange noises were coming from the system - crushing and bubbles... I
slowly proceded later in a downhill with a lot of braking, without
What happened? It's possible that the brake fluid or something else freezes
in such conditions, can salt affect the disc someway?
