Introduzione

If the brakes on your bicycle are squeaking or doing a poor job slowing down your bike this guide will provide instruction to clean, adjust, or even replace the brake pads on your bicycle to rectify these issues.  This guide will also show you how to adjust your brake pads to be “toed-in” (the brake pads will be positioned in such a  way that the front part of the brake pad will make contact before the back half) to reduce further wear on the brake pads as well as increase their effectiveness.
