Re: Handbrake adjustment

Hi.... You can adjust the handbrake cable at the handbrake lever.


You can adjust at the hubs: Remove rubber bung and adjust the nothched adjuster wheel upwards until it tightens, then back it off a few nothes to ensure that the shoes are not binding. Then you can adjust the two adjustment nuts at the handbrake lever.
