I found an old bmx in my shed and I'm just doing it up a little as a good muck around bike. It's not very good, I don't even know the brand but i cut the front brake off, because it didn't even work but the back brake is a U brake but I've found that when biking I'll pull the lever all the way back (as far and the grip) but it's like the brake isn't even working.. I know it's working but it's just not strong enough. So I have 2 questions.
- How do I make the brake lever harder to pull so I don't pull it all the way to the grip?
- How do I adjust the actual U brake to be a little closer to the rim?
Any help is appreciated! Just trying to get it working. Feel free to ask any questions too. Cheers!
