Can you tell us what kind of brakes you have? What kind of rim (should be labelled)? Also, can you tell us if, under hard braking, your brake levers touch your hand-grips?
Sand papering brake pads might be temporary solution, but if the problem is with your rims or brake adjustment, you need a more permanent solution. Tell us more...
