    bike brake rotates

    My kids bike brake mechanism rotates when she applies the brake and it leaves one pad still contacting the rim. Anything I can do to fix this?

    Could you put a little be more effort into your description of the problem? A good picture would really help as well.

    It is a fair cop...

    The brakes are linear pull brakes as seen here: http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=21
