rear brake locking problim

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone can help me with my rear brake.

when slowing down my rear wheel locks and wont unlock until I stop completely and back up,

and than I can ride on.I don't race but still it gets annoying,it's a drum type brake activated by a cable.

It's not the cable or the peddle sticking, so it must be inside the drum itself,but everything looked fine and I'm tired of taking the wheel off.

any help is appreciated thanks.

Your problem is the brake shoes or drum is worn and the cam that presses on the shoes is going over center.

Once it's over center it locks on. Replace the brake shoes and see if that helps.
