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.

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


Hi,

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 Parktool.com'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,
matt

What is the adjustment procedure on a shimano deor front derailleur. it will not shift into high gear.


Try this first:
Shift into the small ring and release the cable. Pull it tight (with pliers) and re-tighten the cable. It should shift now. If it doesn't, the solution is a little time consuming, so i apologize in advance.
First, flip your bike onto the bars and saddle. Now shift into the small chainring and your lowest cassette cog (the largest in number of teeth). Release the cable from the front derailleur and set the adjustment knob for the front derailleur to its center point. You should find it on your shifter. Now adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur while turning the crank so that its stop sets it in a position where it just skims the chain but does not touch it. Now pull the cable taut and re-clamp the cable. Shift into the middle ring and shift the rear derailleur to its highest and lowest gears, making sure the chain does not rub the front derailleur. If it does rub (it will be in either the lowest or highest cog on the cassette), adjust the front derailleur by way of the adjustment knob to clear the rub. Then shift into the big ring and you should have no problem. Set the "H" stop if necessary.

Problem with top/low adjustment screws on shimano gears


Forget the screws as those are more for fine tuning once you are close to having it set correctly. Where the shift cable connects to the shifter on the bars you will typically find an adjustment knob (note that you may have the same type of adjustment knob where the cable meets the gear shift mechanism also) which the cable rides in. You will make much larger jumps in adjustment when using this method as opposed to using the screws located on the gear changing mechanism. Best of luck to you on the fix!!

Please be sure to rate this solution.
