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.

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.

Men Mountain Bike (26"): How to adjust tention on the rear brakes...


Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.

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.

Rear Disc brake is rubbingke


I had the same problem with my Hope mono-mini.
I took it into a shop and the guy showed my ruffly what to do.

On the side that the disk is rubbing you need to put a spacer on the bolt between the brake mount and the bike's mount.
If done correctly (or understood what i meant) it will pull the pad away from the disk a little bit and it will stop rubbing.

Hope it helps
