Adjusting Rear Brakes

Postby Austin Cox » Tue Aug 10, 2010 6:44 am



How do I adjust spongey rear brakes - brake pads have been recently replaced but rear brake pedal goes to the floor with little braking?

If you really want rock-solid brakes, replace the old rubber brake lines with new stainless-steel braided lines. Best upgrade I have made to my bike by far.
