If your brake keeps making noise or you think it is too loose/tight, please the following steps that may help you adjust it in a good condition:
- Please check whether the disc brake is in the middle of the brake caliper and brake pad? If not, loosen the caliper bolts and wiggle the caliper loose, then hold down the brake lever. Holding down the brake lever will center the caliper over the disc with the help of the brake pads. With the brake lever pulled, tighten the caliper bolts equally and evenly. Spin the wheel. If rubbing persists, repeat this step. It may take a couple of tries before the caliper is aligned correctly.
- At the brake caliper, turn the barrel adjuster out a couple of turns. Loosen the lockring on the barrel adjuster, rotate the barrel adjuster out or away from the brake caliper body, and tighten the lockring. This will help prevent overtightening the brake cable.
- Use a 5 mm Allen wrench to loosen the cable pinch bolt partway, just enough to allow the cable to move. Gently push the brake caliper arm up the brake cable while pulling the brake cable downward so it is taut. Tighten the cable pinch bolt to secure the brake cable.
- Spin the wheel to check if the wheel spins freely. If the wheel does not spin freely, loosen the lockring and barrel adjuster a couple of turns counterclockwise, then tighten the lockring. This will increase cable tension and prevent the outer pad from being overtightened.
