Doesn't sound like a shop that knows what they are doing, or they just didn't want to work on your bike. If the brake lever is broken, why didn't they try to sell you a new one? If your brakes are obsolete, why didn't they try to sell you a new brake system? Bicycle brakes are not rocket science, take it to a different shop fir a new quote, or get a book on how to repair bikes and do it yourself.

Rear tail light stays on all the time. Is this normal (new bike for me), meaning is the light supposed to come on BRIGHTER when the brakes are applied and that function is broken, or is the light supposed...


Good news. Mine did the same thing. There should be a running light and a "brake" light all within the same bulb. Check the switches on the front brake lever and the rear brake lever. Both actuate the rear brake light. You can usually do a quick test by pushing the brake lever on the handlebar all the way out and see if the light goes out. This is what my problem was. If you poke around you will see a switch on both brake levers. Make sure they are pressed in when your not pulling (handle bar lever) and pushing (right foot brake lever). You will see a switch with a little rod on it, when you press the foot break/pull the hand brake, it will come all the way out. That is when the light comes on. Hope this helps.

Broken brake cables


There are two different brake cable ends, one is for road bikes, the other is mostly on bicycles with flat handle bars. Brake cables generally need lubrication and adjustment. It is not uncommon for corrosion to develop inside the bake cable housing. I would appreciate more information on your broken cables. The cables are not expensive and are easy to replace.

How do i remove the front tire of my men's voyageur bike? I know how to work the release hub, but how do I get it past the brakes?


There is usually a release lever (or two) to allow the brake caliper to open a little extra wide. Some have a tab on the brake handle that you can twist to the side which allows the brake handle to spring open a bit extra (it has the effect of requiring the biker to have large hands to operate the brakes.) On many others (or yours may have both) there is another lever on the brake calipers that allows the caliper to open a bit wider. This lever usually has a little round tab a bit smaller than a dime. If all else fails, simply deflate the tire before your remove the wheel and re-inflate it after you put it back on. (terminology -- brake lever is the handle that you operate while riding the bike. brake caliper is the mechanism at the wheel that squeezes the rim when your hand squeezes the brake lever.) I hope this helps.

My saturns e-brake stoped working and wont stay up how can i fix that?


if you mean the parking brake, sounds like you have broken a cable. the cables keep tension on the handle and without that tension it won't stay up. also the broken cable would mean no parking brakes. if however the parking brakes work when you pull and hold the brake handle, then you have a broken part in the handle itself. you will need to get under it to figure out which cable is broken and replace it. the heat shielding may make this hard. I think the parking brake system is made of three separate cables, you can buy new ones at autozone, advance, ebay. stay away from dealers and used parts on this repair.

I took front wheel off bike to fix puncture. i


Loosen up the hub nuts. Center the wheel between brake pads. Put something like a screw driver in the space between wheel and frame to keep the wheel centered and not moving as you tighten the nuts.

Trouble with back brakes/cable?


The brake line for the back seems to be stuck, make sure it's tight on the handle bar and the brake in the back is not overly worn or too tight. If the problem presists try replaceing the pads and brake line.

Front Brake is Locked


Now that you have bled the brakes and everything seems okay, try pumping the brake lever many times while the bike is stationary. Do the brakes build up pressure and not release? If everything still seems okay after you do that I would take the bike for a ride around the neighborhood. Stop every few minutes to make sure the disc isn't heating up indicating the brakes may not be releasing properly.

If the master cylinder is working properly, when you pull the brake lever fluid is pumped into the brake line. This forces the brake pads against the brake disc, stopping the bike. When you let off the lever the fluid is allowed back into the master cylinder. If the cylinder does not release the fluid it could put a quick end to your riding. I would not be comfortable letting someone ride this bike very far until I took the master cylinder apart and satisfied myself that it was problem free.

1999 Dodge Neon R/T hand Brake


You have a broken cable, or one of its parts. You need to trace the cable from the "pull" back to where it splits to go to the left and right rear brakes, and finally to each rear brake. You will most likely need to get under the vehicle and for this you will need to jack it up. Please be safe, or if uncomfortable, take to a trained mechanic, that should be able to fix this for very little money.

If you choose to go it yourself, please check out this article.

The lock on the brakes of my bugaboo cameleon doesn't work.


I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

Best Regards,Fred, Stockholm, Sweden(Sorry about the English, hope you understand)
