    Wink Haynes = underwear Hayes = disc brakes

    Don't worry about them- dust, mud, water will not harm the pads- they will clean themselves just fine. If you still want to "clean" them then just spray some water at the caliper and pads while spining the wheel. The main thing to keep off the pads is oil of any type including the oil from your hands.
