This guide is for if you conclude that your difficulty with braking is due to your brake cables being too loose.
No parts required.
Loosen the bolt that clamps the brake cable on the brake caliper with the 10mm open-end wrench.
Pull the brake cable until proper tension is acquired and the cable shows resistance.
Re-tighten the clamping nut.
If necessary, adjust the positioning of the caliper arms by loosening the dome nut at the pivot point and manually shifting the arms in the desired direction.
For more precise adjustment of the brake cable tension, use pliers to tighten the barrel nut at the opposite ends of the handlebars on the brake levers.
