Question about Cycling
Somehow the rear brake got detached on my bike (specialized rockhopper) and I can't figure out how to fix it.
Something doesn't look right, like something is missing. You may want to look at a similar bike to get a better visual as to proper configuration.

SOURCE: Bicycle Rear Wheel Problem
You may have buckled your wheel if its a spoked type ! If you have buy a spoke key and tighten the spokes opposite the buckle .............ie if the buckle goes over to the left stop wheel and tighten spoke that lie on the right of the rim ..........it fairly easy if your rim is not to badly damaged..... you will have to keep on tinkering to true the wheel up.......ps also check your spoke are tight before starting as i have seen spokes just loosen for no reason.......hope this helps.

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.
