SOURCE: 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.

Perhaps some adjustment is necessary or there is so much friction in the cable housing or brake bosses that the spring tensiion of the brakes can't overcome it.

Search engine of your choice "adjust brakes on bicycle" or "service bicycle brake cables".

SOURCE: how do i adjust mountain bike brakes

There is a small tension nut on the cable near the brake calipers on the cable coming from the brake. Loosen that nut and squeeze or loosen the brakes to where you want them and then retighten the nut on the cable.

How can i fix the brakes on a diamondback octane 24?


Brakes can have a number of things wrong with them, as they are a crucial part of the bikes safety and fairly complicated, this is probably not the best first time project and I would recommend taking the bike into your local bike shop.

If you insist on working on the brakes yourself, and it is good to know how to work on your brakes, then you should get a good repair manual that clearly explains the process and what tools you will need for your specific brakes.

Books are readily available at any bookstore and many bike shops (where you will be buying the parts and most likely tools, anyway)

Here is a couple of good ones. Park tool repair manual (the big blue book) and Zinn and the art of mountain bike maintance.

My problem with these brakes is that I can't find any after searching the internet for a couple of weeks now. Any idea where I can purchase some? thx. spudzpc@comcast.net


This will be a part that will take much longer than 2 weeks to find. It will take a lot of luck, since these have not been made for many, many years.

Just keep searching the normal places, EBAY, craigslist, campy forums, vintage mountain bike forums, and the like.

You may need to put out a wanted add on some of the forums. I will warn you though that the brakes will cost more than they are worth because of their relative scarcity.

If all you need are cantilever brakes, there are numerous other choices that will work just fine, if not better and are readily available.

I am looking for a manual for a mongoose tech 4 mountain bike or instructions regarding how to adjust the brakes


The brakes should have a label on them so you can find their website. Most of the good manufacturers have directions on their sites for adjusting their products. The bike I looked at had V brakes. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/canti-direct.html is the site to look at. Great pictures and good explanations.
