I do not know much about bike mechanics (planning on going to some classes) but the last few days my brakes feel squishy. I can pull them all the way back and the stopping power really sucks and not what it was before. I could actually get no stopping from my back brake. So this morning I was cleaning the bike up (after the rainy commute) and I decided to screw around with the brakes. Granted, I was nervous because I had no clue what I Was doing.
Here is a picture:
I am not sure if I did this right or not so please let me know if there is something I should have done differently.
I first loosed the allen screw and then tightened the brake cable. I did this by hand. Should have used pliars. Then I tightened it back up and it was fixed but the disc was rubbing so I rotated the red nob and it worked.
Was this right?
