Use the Right Tools and Components

Each manufacturer will recommend specific brake pads for 50mm carbon tubular wheels. The brake pads made of cork ceramic composite are heat-resistant and can produce very little heat. 

Overheating can cause damage to carbon wheels so it is important that you adhere to the manufacturer's instructions. You won't damage the wheels by using the wrong brake pad.

Washing Your Bike

Normal washing your carbon bike with warm soapy water is fine. Be careful when washing the parts close to the cranks and bearings. These sections should not be washed with water. 

Dealing with Flats

Sometimes, you may have a flat tire. If you don't make a mistake while fixing the tire, it is not a big deal. It is important to choose the right tools for fixing flats. Plastic tire levers are better for 50mm carbon tubular wheels than metal ones. They can cause damage to the wheels.
