I finally have my SSXL up and running and im starting to put some good miles on it. One issue I keep running into is my brakes seem to be wearing out freakishly fast. Like I'll have the rear tire locking up in the driveway and by the time I get across town I have to pull over and adjust the cable or set screw because they're getting weak.

Every time I go riding I need to pack tools and its starting to annoy me...

My buddy keeps telling me that the cable is just slipping but I am almost positive its not. I am also noticing brake dust on the rim.

These are the original brakes. Do those just get funky after all those years? just time to replace them?
