I have a tomos LX, and I'm having massing problems with the front brake. I've adjusted it to the point where I think it's perfect... it has just a tad of free play, and then as I pull I really feel some resistance so I have to assume the shoes are pushing on the drums. When I try it with the front wheel off the ground, and just spin it by hand, it's able to stop the wheel.
But under load, it literally does nothing. I've tried adjusting and readjusting, I've tried shortening the cable and keeping it almost perfectly straight, I've changed the shoes, I've sanded/scored the shoes and the drum, I think that's everything other than getting new drums.
Has anyone had this problem and found a workable solution? My next step is new drums and shoes, but that's expensive. Don't want to spend the money if there's something else going on!
Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
