There should be (for lack of a better desciption) a round metal "plug" on the end of the brake cable where it attacheds to the lever. it hooks into the lever and there should be an adjustment further down to the caliper to adjust it.

Hand break on my daughters bike won't release

check that the brake pads aren't catching on the rim or the tire, check that the brake cable isn't rusty inside the housing or corroded. check the bolt that attaches the brake caliper to the frame to see if it is too tight.

My husband bought me this bike for my birthday and I love it except the brakes are extremely loud. How can I fix this problem?

A bike shop can explain better because it is many small steps. If you can't fix it, then new brake pads will be needed. Once you have the new brake pads you will need to fallow the same steps. You have to break in the pads. If you don't, using the brakes causes execive noise.

How to stop cable disc brake pads from constantly rubbing on disc; what adjustments needed?

Depends on the braking system.

1) turn the adjuster know on the side of the brakes, this will increase/ decrease the distance the pads are from the rotor.

2) adjust the cable adjuster at the brake lever, if it is screwed out (away from) the lever, then turn it back toward the lever to provide a little slack in the cable tension.

3) loosen the cable by loosening the attachment bolt at the brake, letting some of the tension out of the cable, then retightening.

If none of these work, then you will need to take into your local bike shop to see what is wrong.

My daughter undid the quick release on her front brake for her astral 1.0 bike and cannot put it back. Can you explain how to hook up the brakes once the front tire is back on??

The cable runs through a bent piece of aluminum tubing called a noodle. At the end of the noodle is a piece that looks like the business end of a bullet. You need to squeeze the two brake pad levers and insert the bullet on top of the cable catch.

Brake assembly

I did no find assembly instructions specific to this model.  From what I see in pictures and descriptions it looks like a standard caliper brake on the front wheel.  The knob/plug on the cable should fit into a groove and hole on the brake lever if the cable is slack enough to make the connection.  You may have to loosen the cable tension nuts at the caliper and at the brake handle (labeled 1 & 2 in the instructions) to get enough slack.
Generic instructions are at:
See pages 21-23 for instructions about adjusting the brakes.  You will have to do this after making the connection and it shows the various cable tension nuts that you can use to get enough slack in the cable to connect it.  If you loosen the cable tension nuts (1&2) enough you should be able to remove the cable from the slot through the housing, expose the attachment slot in the brake handle by pressing it against the handlebar, insert the knob/plug into the hole and then work the cable back into the slot in the housing.  Tighten up the tension nuts and make the final adjustments as described in the instructions.

Bicycles Brakes Tightening

Are the brakes center pull or side pull?
Center pull would have a nut directly in the center of the brake. Now go to the brake lever on your handle bars and tighten the turn screw where the cable handle is. Keep turning the nut till your brakes grip.
If you have side pull brakes. Then where the cable meets the breaks. Their is a nut that the cable slides through. Loosen the nut and firmly pull the cable till its tight and retighten the nut.
