I am a commuter with a huffy 10 champion bike.
I want to start riding more seriously and need to fix a few things with my bike in order to make it safer and smoother.
I plan to start with my breaks (pictures attached).
My breaks are a bit rusty (from the 80s and have not been used for about 15 years, I got them from a family member).
I tightened the calbes on my breaks, but they are still a bit loose (and if i tighten then more I don't have any leverage). The break handles (on the handle bar) are a bit loose as well as a result...
What breaks should I buy that will fit my bike?
is there an easier way to improve their performance?
Thanks for the help!
