    Brakes don't grip

    I just fitted my brakes again today, but they dont stick.
    The chrome has come off my rim so i'm gussing that's a problem,
    is there a way to get the pads to grip my rim without getting a new rim?

    Cheeers

    Not sure if this will work i kinda want to try it... get a dremmel and sand down your rim with a fine grit. And clear coat it again make sure you do alot of coats... then wet sand it down smooth with 600-1000 grit i think it would work atleast better then what you have... but ive never tried it
