Assuming the wheel is centered in the frame and all is working well, the pressure springs need to be adjusted. using the pressure screws (small screw sticking out of thr side of the brake) you can adjust the return pressure of each side. Loosen the screw on the side that is moving a quarter turn, tighten the screw on the side that does not move. squeeze the brake lever, check operation, continue until the brakes work equally.

My brakes are dragging on my 7 speed Schwinn cruiser?

Possibly to tight, there is a adjustment either at the toop of the brake or at the brake lever, check to see if it can be loosen. Brakes don't just start dragging. Something has to change for this to occur. Brakes do wear, which limits the stopping of the bike. If there is no adjustment, I suggest taking to your local bike shop for assistance

That could be a couple of things.
1. the brake pads are worn down too far. 2. or the brakes are out of adjustment.

When I take my daughters front wheel off her Diamondback bike I need to reajust the front break. How can this be avoided?

By always placing the wheel firmly into the fork's dropouts and then then tightening the quick release. Adjust the brake centering and it should always stay the same UNLESS the brake centering itself is moving every time you disconnect the brake to remove the wheel. Then it gets complicated.

Back tire replacement

Before doing anything else, loosen the rear wheel and make sure the axle is fully seated in the dropouts, then tighten it. The brake should not be able to contact the tire, only the rim.

Not sure from what is here what kind of bike and brand of brakes or derailleurs you have.

You could always Google it. There are lots of how-to's with illustrations out there. For example, "shimano rear brake adjustment" finds a whole bunch of advise.

How do you adjust front cable tension, the front brake pads are a bit away from the rim

The sleeve surrounding the outer cable where it exits from the brake lever mechanism is usually a screw adjuster. Turn anticlockwise to bring blocks closer to rim.

How do i adjust the brakes on a schwinn stingray low rider bicycle? the front brakes dont grip the wheel enough to stop and the rear is rubbing on one side. thanks


Let us start with the rear. The brake arms will have a small screw located on them near the pivot. You can screw these in to adjust the relation of the pad to the rim. You can also (if that didn't take care of it) remove the brake arm and move the spring's pin to the next hole to make sure it properly clears itself.
The front can be tightened on the brake levers with the adjustment barrel, or, if that is already fully turned out, turn it all the way back in and release the cable at the brake itself and retighten it when you have adequately adjusted the brake there.
Check out's repair help page (located at the top right hand of their homepage) for excellent detailed and illustrated help in bike maintenance.

Hope this helps a little,

How are the front brake on a rebel adjusted

There should be a knurled barrel adjuster on the brake lever. Unscrew it some and your brakes should "tighten." When you have 'em where you want 'em, screw the lock ring (the big round thing on that barrel adjuster) back down against the brake lever, locking it in position.

If you can't get it tightened enough that way, you'll need to take slack out of the cable at the brake itself. Loosen the nut that holds the end of the cable in place and pull the cable tight, then tighten the nut back up. You can then fine tune using the barrel adjuster on the brake lever.
