ProMax Aluminum linear pull brakes-adjustment

New Fuji Odessa 1. Assembled but rear brakes always on. Adjustment method please. Also front brakes. Left side(sitting on bike) does not make contact-with rim while right side does. I assume you loosen nut and pull cable tighter to shorten stroke and bring closer to rim?
Thanks! Bill D

SOURCE: brake adjustment promax aluminum linear pull

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.

Rear brakes don't stop bike


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.

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.

To adjust back brakes


The best method for adjusting your rear brakes assuming that they are of drum type, is to jack up the rear axle one side at a time and remove the rubber cap on the inner brake plate.Block your front wheels forward and rear. Then with a brake adjustment tool available at most auto part stores, turn the adjuster in the "only" direction that it will turn. The vehicle must not be in park to do this, so make sure she's on level ground. Once you've done this, spin the tire of the wheel you are working on and adjust the brake until you feel a slight drag on the tire. You can also listen to hear the brake shoue touching the drum. You also might want to have someone press the brake pedal occasionallly to "center" the the shoes. Thank you, Dana

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.

Spongy brakes 1996 Chevy C1500


You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.

Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
  1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
  4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
  5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
  1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
