Brake repair

Hi i'm new to this forum and mopeds in general... I posted this in general discussion then noticed this category... anyway i am going to be buying a qingqi qm50qt-b2 tomorrow... when i test drove it i noticed the rear brakes seemed to be worn out.. i was just wondering if it is the shoes that wear out or something else usually, also if it is shoes that are supposed to be replaced does anyone know what size shoes my model (qm50qt-b2) requires? Thanks for the help, i'm trying to find out stuff for myself but don't know where to look (other than google) so please be patient with me, i'm trying :) Thanks again

Shoes wear out, well, the lining does. Do a visual, sometimes it's just cable stretch/slack. Return springs inside get weak too, but it's probably the shoes if the brake feels weak.
