My foot parking brake seems to need a further travel distance to properly engage. I see there is a way to adjust the brake from near the peddle itself using a socket. But there is also a way to adjust the brakes by removing the rear wheels and adjusting the parking brake cog. But my question is which adjustment actually effects the brake peddle travel distance?

probably the latter,when i did mine wound fully out then 4 turns back in. It is a pain with the hub on.

Might be a good time to replace the shoes - 12 years is a good life for these.

Tutorial below. I found a good clean up, brake shoe roughing up with sandpaper and adjustment sorted mine. The brake shoes rarely wear out.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
