Question about Schwinn Mesa Gs Mountain Bike
When I squeeze the left hand brake it does nothing, the brake at the tire doesn't move
You'll have to remove the mounting bolt from that arm with the proper size allen key. Clean the post and lube it. While you have the arm off have a look at the spring . It may be broken or just disconnected from where it is supposed to be attached. Also check that the brake cable is moving freely in the guide(noodle) and is attached properly to the opposing brake arm.When you have the pivot lubed slide the brake arm back on and make sure it pivots properly. Readjust the brakes and you should be in business. The front brakes and the back brakes work the same so look at the working set and compare to the non working set if you need a guideline to go by. If you have hydraulic brakes you will have to take the bike in to be serviced as it requires specialized tools. Hope this helps.
