Another 'help me' thread sorry,
I've got a BMX for my lad (GT Vertigo) and no matter what I do to setup the brakes, they still seem absolute sh!te.
Pads are set up perfectly, tried various other pads, took the sheen off of them aswell.
Cables run smoothly and the calipers are mechanicaly sound.
The wheel rims are quite polished and someone has advised it may help to clean them with some white spirits, so I'll try that this evening.
I'm not happy with my son riding it until it has 2 good brakes and he's getting very frustrated with that!
The only thing I can think of is that proper BMX pads are alot softer and this is what I need?
So for his sake, any advice?
