The brakes on my FA 50 do not stop me like they should. I am a bit heavy (220) for my ped so I suppose that is an issue. I have tried adjusting all the knobs the service manual refers too and I've looked at the brake gauges but they look okay. I guess I feel ready to try tackling taking things apart and eye balling the brake shoes, etc. I've never tried anything like this. Are brakes fairly simple to deal with? Do I need certain tools? Once everything is taken apart are there things I should look for? Now that you know I am totally inexperienced should I go for it? So many of you seem to be teens who have had tons of experience you give me hope that I can learn.
Your help is appreciated.
