Facing your bike, straddle your front wheel between your knees.

Locate the front brake at the top of the fork. It will more than likely look like the picture on your left.

Since the tire is normally wider than the space between the brake pads, you must first release the tension in the brake wire. To do this, run your right hand under both brake calipers and push them inwards towards one another.
