How do you break in a carbon rim?
Proper Braking Technique for Carbon Rims
- Distribute braking force as evenly as possible between your front and rear brakes.
- Avoid prolonged braking, such as “dragging” your brakes, which can cause a dangerous amount of heat buildup in carbon rims.
- Use shorter, more powerful periods of braking.

Do Lime scooters turn off at night?
Technically, Bird and Lime scooters don’t “turn off.” However, at 9 p.m., all scooters with non-low batteries — at least 90% charged — become “harvestable” (eligible for chargers to pick up). Since this is a lucrative business, as a rider, it can be tough to find a scooter after 9 p.m.
