My brakes are making a constant dragging noise

My brakes have a periodic scraping/pinging noise, but it is not constant

My brakes are making a lot of noise while braking

  • Resurface Brake Pads and Rotors
  • It may also be possible the brake pads have been used all the way, which would also cause noise/grinding feeling. If that is the case, then Brake Pad Install will be the section needed.
  • It may also be possible there is a brake fluid leak which has contaminated the brake pads and rotors. If this is the case, a new brake system would be recommended.

My brakes feel like they do not have much power or I have to pull far to have them stop

  • Brake Bleed
  • Brake Pad Install
  • Your brake may also be leaking fluid, which usually indicates a broken seal in the braking system. If there appears to be liquid all over your brake caliper. Pads, and rotor, then this is more than likely a leaking brake. Replacing the braking system would be recommended in this scenario.


My chain is skipping

Bike will not shift into a specific gear

Chain keeps throwing off of the cassette or chainring

Chain Is Stuck

  • Depending how stuck the wheel is, you may have to remove the rear wheel to get the chain unstuck. Once the chain is unstuck, do a Shifting Adjustment to set the limit screws so the chain does not go into these positions anymore.
