Bikes: The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996, although I modify it throughout the year for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

Are the cables adjusted properly? My guess is no.

The adjustment of brake cables plays a huge role in determining how much pressure it takes to make the pads meet the rim. If you do not know how to adjust brake cables, bring the bike to a shop and have a qualified mechanic do it for you. Being able to stop is kind of important!
