rear brake

Recommended Posts

my rear brakes now all of a sudden do not work at all! what sucks about it is that i learned this while i was riding the other day on the trails....however they were fine the evening before when i was riding around the house...what could be the problem? i have no clue, i know the pads aren't bad....but when the brake lever is pushed in there are no brakes? does it have to do with the stupid drum brakes?

how hard is it to take apart the drum?

Not hard at all. Pull the axle out and disconnect the brake linkage and loosen the chain. Pull the wheel off and the whole drum assembly just comes right off the side of the wheel. As for taking the internals apart, theres really not that much in there that you cant planely see that might be broken.
