Step of 7: Look After V-Brakes On A Bike
Adjust A Bike’s Handlebar Controls Attached To Flat Handlebars
Knowing how to properly check the operation of a v-brake will help you diagnose any problems.
The hand controls need to be easily accessible and your hands need to be comfortable while riding to avoid fatigue.
Twist-grip gear shifters are locked by a small grub screw – with a hexagonal socket – near the inside end.
Loosen the clamp bolts so the controls can just be moved.
Position the controls where they are easy to operate and comfortable to rest on.
Clamp the controls tight in the new position.
Make sure the controls still have room to function, that the levers can travel as far as necessary.
