Caliper brake issues
First time posting to this forum, and I hope you can help!
Ive recently come into possession of a Suteki 15 steel road bike. I know, shes not the fanciest out there, but I like her... she had some quirks, most of which I managed to puzzle out my self.
My remaining issue is this: The "Lee-chi" branded caliper on the front wheel is a bit wierd. It works, quite well, but the left hand brake arm and pad do not return out as far as the right hand side of the caliper. My concern is that if the situation worsens, the pad and caliper arm will not release, and I have a brake pad that will be constantly riding the rim.
Can you guys (or girls) point me towards a likely candidate? Do I have to replace these before they get worse? Can I re-hab them?
