I have an el-cheapo department store mountain bike made in China and sold by the likes of Walmart or other low-end retailers. For the life of me I can get the godd--n brakes adjusted right! One or the other side moves but not both sides. There are spring tension adjustment screws on either side but no matter what I do only one side moves, and it rubs on the other side. Any tips?
My impression has always been that the junkier the bike the harder it is to adjust, and this confirms it.
