    I have two new Mongoose 20" Racer-X, great bikes but front brkes useless, one sort of works, the other is hopeless.

    Dealer also hopeless..

    I think the brake block material is just too hard or even too long for the little levers.

You may need to shorten the brake cable by loosening the thumbscrew locknut, extending the adjuster and re-tightening the locknut. If there isn't enough adjustment, you'll have to shorten the cable by loosening its locknut, shorten the cable by about 1/4" at a time, and re-adjusting your thumbscrew adjustments until the brakes are effective. Also make sure your new shoes are lined up with the sides of the wheels and you may want to lightly sand the surface of the new shoes, just to roughen them a bit so that they seat faster.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

It will depend on how you have the TV connected. You also need plenty of memory on the computer or you will see the picture break up or stop. When you are capturing you need to select the setting that the video source is connected to: for example S-Video. You will need to set the quality of the capture, but this isn't as straightforward as it seems. For on some formats the signal will be poor. You have to adjust it till it looks right. You will also might have to adjust the PAL/NTSC colour settings and others.

Peugeot faults

Did you have the hand brake cable adjusted, tightened or is it broken? If the brake won't hold and the pads are good then it's probably an issue with the cable that activates the brake.

I want to change the speed of a clip in final cut but the software says that can not do it because a have a conflict with the trim operation... what can i do??

Lock the tracks that are below the track your clip is on. This should do it. Keep in mind that adjusting the speed will also make all the clips on your track move in relation to the adjusted speed. If you just want to make the clip change speed without affecting anything else, you can create a new track, drag the clip you want up to the new track, lock all the other tracks and then adjust the speed. Then put the clip back in its place.

My brakes

If you were familiar enough with brakes to make repairs, I would suggest that you probably wouldn't have posted this question. If you really want to learn to replace your own brakes, I would suggest that you buy a Chilton's Manual for your car. They're definitely worth the money. Your car is nothing different or significantly different from most cars, when replacing pads or shoes, but you really should machine the rotors and drums if you replace the linings. If they are beyond specs, they will need to be replaced. By that I mean if your rotors are too thin or if the drums are too worn (inside diameter too large). If you've ***** done brakes before, you need to have a qualified mechanic (preferably ASE certified) at least check what you've done before re-assembly. I was ASE certified for over 20 years, and I've even made my share of mistakes. Thank *** that those always showed up in the test drive. Had anyone had a collision and gotten hurt or died as a result of my mistake, I might ***** have forgiven myself. The most important safety feature on your car is the brakes. Don't compromise your safety or that of anyone else who might ride with you or drive your car. Get qualified help or take it to a qualified repair shop. Dealerships are the best. ** one knows your car better than they do, the repairs will be done right the first time and they will notice anything else that you need to be made aware of. GM and Ford are very serious about training their personnel (I've ***** worked at a Chrysler dealership) and won't let un-trained personnel work on your car.
