Question about Cycling
Brake is rubbing on rim and making an annoying noise. How do I adjust ?
Take a small or medium size cresent wrench put it on the brake pad holder slot (the metal piece that adjust them up and down)and slightly tweak them in at an angle.. the brake pads will now be at a slight V angle to the rim this should quiet it down..if there's no room to do this then you"ll have to loosen up the brake cable a little to expand it out..remember its spring loaded so have you hand hold it together and slowly relax you hand then tighten with the other, or theres one more way which is probably a lot easier...adjust the cable screw barrel down a few threads if you can then you"ll have the room needed to angle them in.
