I'm still a novice rider and I just went for my first ride of my second season earlier this week. I need to get some work done on my bike - specifically unseizing the rear brake's calipers and getting the pads replaced, as well as replacing the front tire because the wear bars are showing.
I was going to get the work done this weekend, however given the fact that it's raining and I have next to no experience riding in the rain, i'm concerned that a new (and slippery) front tire mixed with what i'm assuming will be a more powerful back brake could lead to me dumping the bike given my experience level.
Are my worries even valid? How concerned should I be?
